Maybe you're psychiatry critical and don't realize it? What kind of medical tests do you think are done to diagnose mental illness? You might be interested in hearing Paual Caplan describe her time on DSM committees.

That what happens when your whole healthcare system is privately owned and profit-oriented.

I have only good things to say about how my mental illnesses were treated by social healthcare (and for free) in Eastern Europe - it saved my life, as I completely lost my mind at one point. Not sure if it is because I was lucky to get to good doctors, or because in general it is good here.
