This is total bullshit.
If there is a rise in "mental disorders" it's because EVERYTHING is a "mental disorder" now.
Bad hair day-Follicle Unrest Syndrome.
Short? Vertical Height Challenged Syndrome.
Brat having a tantrum? Behaviourally Regressive Angst Syndrome.
I am so sick of it.
How psychiatry went nuts.
Just remember, there are no diagnostic tests that can prove a mental illness. That is not to say that people can't be helped by drugs when they are clearly suffering from some kind of brain illness. However, given that there are no conclusive tests for ANY psychiatric illness, one has to take many of these faddish diagnoses with a grain of salt.
The Book of Woe indeed.
