  • All psychiatrists use to diagnose a mental illness is the ICD10 and an BNF. anyone can be a psychiatrist with these two books.

    All patients get medication from the same group and whilst given antidepressants, they remain on them for many years with no real outcome.

    Too much treatment is based on medication, just hopping from to the next, however nobody tries to deal with the root causes.

    Mental health care is outdated and needs a revolution!
