  1. More harm then good, exactly.

    The way it is now is most people harmed by psychiatry still think they are the exception and not the norm. People believe that when they take the pills and have nothing but side effects and maybe nasty withdrawals, the whole psychiatric nightmare, they think they are part of some unlucky minority instead of noticing so many others can’t find the “right meds” wile they too continue to have psychiatry keeping them sick.

    If an automobile repair shop broke more cars than it fixed they would be out of business in a month but for some reason when psychiatry does more harm than good they just continue to rake billions of dollars.
