My brother is a psychiatrist, and a big-time advocate of anti-depressants and other mood-altering drugs. I understand that psychiatrists feel too overwhelmed by the workload for traditional analysis, but I can't believe that drugs are a great alternative in a society in which drug abuse is such a problem. Maybe we ought to train more psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists, if we can get the AMA, APA, DEA, CDC, etc. to go along.

What if the rise in depression in this era has to do with hopelessness, which has to do with the loss of Christianity as a foundational belief in our society. Existential angst, I think they call it. Drugs are SO not the solution.
