For the record – from a recently trained psychiatrist – neither my medical school nor my psychiatry residency (both mainstream, well-known programs) would have said most of the misinformation that this article claims is taught in medical schools. I don’t know where this author went to medical school, but it certainly does not represent my experience. That said, there are definitely people that argue for some of the points who had a voice in our training – eg, in both contexts we read and debated the evidence for and against SSRIs being able to decrease the total suicide rate, or that having a manic response to an antidepressant predicts that on average that person is more likely to benefit from a mood stabilizer than someone who did not have such a response (the practical way to restate the idea that there is underlying bipolarity revealed). We are exposed to a broad range of opinions, however, and encouraged to recognize the conflicting opinions and the presence or absence of evidence for each of them, and to know we’re responsible for making informed decisions ourselves. Which is how I believe it should be.
