The 1 Boring Old Man blog discusses how MDD started as a “Descriptor, then became a Disorder, then became a Brain Disease, and now seems have now morphed into yet something else – a multi-billion dollar Market.” “The antipsychiatrists are active as ever on sites like Mad in America. There are skeptics and Cynics aplenty within and around psychiatry, but nothing like a cohesive group looking to sort all of this out. And yet PHARMA and the business world seem to be chugging along as if it’s still the 1990s, oblivious to what’s going on around them – Growth, growth, growth, at any cost.”
