Lecture ~ Aug 8th

Are Psychological Disorders a myth?
I personally feel Psychological Disorder does exist and many people suffer with this illness. How can a person dismiss what an individual is going through and say it is not real? It's as if they are saying that their symptoms and what they are living through does not exist. If depression is real to the person and they have symptoms that back up what they are experiencing, then it is real. Now I will agree with the possibility that some cases may be misdiagnosed, since the number of cases has skyrocketed in the past 20 years. But even with that acknowledgement, I would maintain that something is still wrong with the individual if they are depressed or displaying inattention, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. I feel these conditions can be helped, so the labeling should not stay with them the rest of their life. There is no shame in having an illness.
