We knew it was coming because the newly formed judicial "Mental Health Courts", each state, warrants more mental health personnel to mind drug more victims for the profits and political power and control over the population then psychiatry can offer by itself.

Sorry, psychologists could have spent more time and money on education to become a psychiatrist to have the ability to write prescriptions. They do have avenues to work with a patient's primary care physician to combine therapy with medicine or to release the patient to be cared for by a psychiatrist. There are enough cases of overdoses and tragic withdraw situations to limit access to mind altering drugs to those who are willing to see a patient all the way through their healing.

There is no reason whatsoever for giving psychologists the power to write prescriptions. Lots of kids major in psychology, and they can hang a shingle" saying as much. So now such people want to write prescriptions? Ye gods. They have no medical training whatsoever. Ugh, ugh, and ugh.

No science to what the mental, health industry is doing. No checks and balances.

There is no medical model. There is no evidence based medicine. There is "no test"@ for chemical imbalance of the brain and the mental health industry wouldn't know a good brain from a defective brain by chemical imbalance. The APA in 2007 admitted tl the falsehood of chemical imbalance and mind drugging people including children and infants. No doubt the motive was power and control and profit over the society.

The perminent damages and compromising of people including the children as a result of mind drugging caused a government financial problem by medicare and medicaid.
75 percent of medicare was for mental health diagnoses and 85 percent of VA costs are associated with the mental health diagnoses. The investments in the pharmaceutical industry were substantially a money maker at the cost of the health and welfare of the society.

Within the last few years concentration by the Wall Street firms has been on getting rid of the private psychologist and psychiatrist for allowing investments in the behavioural industries with the continued mind drugging of people including children. The Judiciary is still perticipating in clients for the mental health industry through the Family Law Courts developed under the Republican (ALEC) Reagan/ Bush presidency and now the the Mental Health Court is springing up in each state without Congressional approval that is violating Constitutional issues and is nothing more then a means of increasing mind drugging for profits and politicalmreasons of the pharmacutical industry and clients for the mental health hospitals. The Mental Health court is the most damaging to the democracy and is part of the Republican New World Order. A Republican coup detat.

Psychologist have no science. They are nothing more then person based on hearsay with a political agenda. The promotion of psychologist goes hand and hand with the Republican ALEC intention for control of the judiciary with the new Mental Health court.
