This doesn't make sense to me at all but I've seen it stated here before. Why should psychiatric diagnosis be restricted to doctors (and does anyone other than doctors say that it should)? I thought that most of the people working in the field from Social Workers to Psychologists were encouraged to make their own evaluation of the people they treat. Is this not so?
