Are you suggesting that people on this forum didn't already realize all these 
things?

 A little excerpt from a recent TM Free post:
 

 Fairfield residents have been dragging their feet around suicide prevention 
for years.  This is due not only to the American stigma around mental illness.  
It is also exacerbated by TM official and unofficial doctrine.  Just a few of 
them are:
 
 - Maharishi disapproved of Western psychotherapy.
 - If you saw a psychotherapist, you could be disqualified from attending a TM 
course.
 - TM is supposed to make you emotionally healthy, therefore if you report 
emotional problems, you are making TM look bad.
 - People with emotional problems have been advised to do more asanas or learn 
the TM-Sidhis, rather than to seek professional help.
 - People with emotional problems have been told they are "unstressing" rather 
than being advised to seek professional help.
 - When people have had emotional problems (including hospitalizations and 
suicides), the TM organization has tended to hide the information or blame the 
person for being too emotionally unstable to begin with.
 - People with emotional problems have been misdiagnosed by TMers as being in 
higher states of consciousness.
