  • Psychiatry introduced the DSM, which must be used to in order to secure payment from insurance companies for “mental health” services. Even if someone goes to see a counselor of any type – not a psychiatrist – and no drugs are prescribed or taken, a “diagnosis” must be given, if insurance is used. No matter the issue or problem, a person is pathologized as “mentally ill” per the DSM, simply by walking into a clinic or office. This is another way psychiatry has harmed society. We have a psychiatrized society, the result of which is the covering up of the real reasons for personal difficulties and the inability to see a counselor without being pathologized, per the DSM (unless of course, one can pay cash).
