I don’t peg the practice of psychiatry as being phoney (at least not necessarily phoney) but it seems to be in the thrall of looie leftists who could never see the need for such an office to be able to defend itself from... armed looneys! They had to call a cop and wait for the cop?
I’d like to see the statistics of people who have benefited from psychiatry in a constructive way, not just medicated with prescription drugs.
a lot of this is due to the economy and cost cutting in mental health: less employees, less safe environments; less security...Add to that we have a sicker group of people who are now not in state psychiatric hospitals but are being “treated” in outpatient facillities with many patients being homeless.
...and with Obama care..this scene will only get worse..a LOT worse. congratulations to the Progressives!
