Unhinged – The Trouble with Psychiatry

A great show on nhpr
Book title above followed by  – A Doctor’s Revelations about a Profession in Crisis
Dr. Daniel Carlet, M.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Tufts University School of Medicine, editor-in-chief of The Carlat Psychiatry Report
I listened in my car  and later made this comment:

Agreed, for veteran patient or for professionals some aspects of the format may have seemed superficial. Please remember how many people have had no experience with a 'MMI". When suddenly afflicted or exposed to it in a friend, family member or coworker a listener hears the show and it is fascinating. Imagine navigating through an institution, or EAP, an HMO or lack thereof with a diagnosis that carries a stigma that isolates the one suffering. Google educated and overnight who WOULD risk death by not complying or questioning the necessity of any RX? and This is the starting point? It takes village, of competent pf's and a willing and open minded patient to navigate the system and then every available option of RX  AND therapy until  healing can begin and stability can be maintained. There lies the answer of the most accurate diagnosis and only then.Consider my cycle,  and my life stress-ors I might meet 75% or more of numerous  diagnostic criteria in an intake questioning. Involve ALL loved ones form GO,  but check their motives and lifestyle.
