As a licensed therapist for 25 yrs, I can only second what you've written. I came away from my experience with zero respect for the entire mental health field including psychiatrists. God help anyone questioning a psychiatrist. Extreme arrogance is a huge understatement. Rarely was a client informed of the side effects of a medication. It was common for clients to be prescribed medication over the phone. I worked, some, in Alaska where psychiatrists (locums) would be there a few months each prescribing some new "miracle" drug without canceling the prior prescriptions. I won't rattle on but the list is very long.

It is most unfortunate that the entire medical industry, including mental health, is a for profit situation. The for profit business model rules completely.
