How rude. It is true that Psychiatry today with
the DSM as its guide saves many from misery, but
that doesn't mean that the state that it is, doesn't also
put some in misery. There is room for improvement.
If that is an axe a grind, it is every psychiatrist's
axe. Critical Psychiatry is a coallition of
psychiatrists, not a coallition of anti-psychiatrists.
