Young psychiatrist Jean Kim argues that psychiatrists need to reflect more on the morality of their work, then gets “laughed out of the room” by fellow psychiatrists. “One psychiatrist, a schizophrenia specialist, said he didn’t see the point. The acting medical director said he felt I’d called him immoral. A top research psychiatrist said, incredibly, ‘Morality and psychiatry should be kept separate,'” writes Kim.
