More horse manure by the mental Health industry. I Suggest that you test the mental health industry after a year and a 90 percent cut in federal benefits. The industry has no science, no medical model. No evidence based medicine and the industry (APA) lied about chemical imbalance of the brain to drug the population for political reasons.

HumanSpirit You really do speak the truth. These mental health 'professionals' need re-evaluation to see if they really understand the focus of their jobs and how to offer help or hope to those in need. I guarantee each and every one of these 'professionals' will fail at what they practice and I totally agree with what you say. A damned shame you can't get a 'professional' in the VA system to really pay attention to the job at hand!
