Multiple problems exist with this diagnosis. One improtant one is that people who are not capable of diagnosing and treating are no doing that because drug companies and insurance don't want to pay doctors.'Tis cheaper to pay nurse and physician assistants. After patients deteriorate and revolve through hospitals and lose their lifestyles then they may see a specialist who cannot help that much. Just like cancer get harder to treat the longer you wait before getting treatment so too mental illness.
The next problem is the epidemic of home instability due to divorce, domestic violence, addiction. Another is teen motherhood problem. Many times they shuttle between men exposing their children to unsavoury experiences such as sexual abuse, brutality and neglect.
Another important one is that mentally ill people reproduce together leading to genetic anticipation in their ofspring. They seem to find and prefer each other. You cannot keep people with bipolar disorder away from each other. Parental psychopathology leads to the child developing behavioral disturbances while under their influence such that they wind up with diagnoses of their own at a young age. Mix that with the damaging effects of medication ill-prescribed for them such as stimulants and antidepressants and they don't have a prayer.

My wife and I read the New Yorker article after our
child's psychiatrist mentiined it. Our daughter has
been diagnosed as bipolar and we would like very
much to get in touch with the psychologist mentioned
in the article, Dr. April Prewitt. Unfortunately, she
is not listed anywhere in Lexington and there is no
contact info for the kmareka,com weblog. If anyone
knows how we can get in touch with this woman,
could you please email me?([email protected] t).
