look, since the 70s, Big Pharma and shrinks have had a "partnership" that has effectively screwed over patients. The biopsychosocial model has given way to the bio-bio-bio model...even though alot of this "chemical imbalances" stuff isn't even supported by research.
I think psychiatry is unique b/c its the one field of medicine where treatment failure can be blamed on the patient. Still depressed? Maybe its...bipolar, personality disorder, on and so forth. Imagine if you were told that your (flu, pneumonia, cancer, whatever) was still around b/c "You weren't trying hard enough," or "you weren't ready to change."
Shrinks can blame patients and keep on prescribing $$$ drugs, so they win, Big Pharma wins...too bad the patients lose.
