  • Having dealt with psychiatrists, for over thirty years, I can attest to the fact that it is an extremely challenging job. Psychiatry is really in it’s infancy, since so much about the brain is unknown, as mental illness is a mystery to science, mainly.

    There is the other pendulum, in which people discredit everything that they say, and regard the whole field as being a fraud. It is a tough balance, between respecting the discipline, and disregarding it. In terms of legislative power, or legal authority over individuals, in life and death situations, that is another realm, the legislative body.

    I do not agree with euthanizing individuals with complex diagnosis, who show little signs of improvement, I agree with that. People can have breakthroughs, in fact, they do, and we should not presuppose that it will not happen in the future.
