The British Psychological Society (BPS) is hosting a free event aimed at the legal community and politicians on the controversy around the use of psychiatric diagnoses. “The limits and scientific legitimacy of the use of psychiatric diagnosis in mental health services is being openly debated and there is growing recognition of the need for improvement and change,” the event description reads. “Such change will have profound implications for the legal system.”
