  • I feel a little disheartened by the world of mental health. I can’t seem to wrap my head around the ethical practices of psychiatrists. Are they good or bad? Is psychotropic medication helpful at some point? I do believe a lot of the mental disorders in the DSM are just bogus and “money-making” disorders (i.e. ADD, ADHD, etc.) However, what about the other mental disorders that seem very real, like Schizophrenia? Are we to dismiss all of the disorders listed in the DSM? Should medicine never be administered to patients? I don’t know what to think anymore, especially as a new mental health clinician in the field.
