    LIVERPOOL, England — No two people are exactly alike. Therefore, attempting to classify each unique individual’s mental health issues into neat categories just doesn’t work. That’s the claim coming out of the United Kingdom that is sure to ruffle some psychologists’ feathers.

    Study: Psychiatric Diagnoses Are 'Scientifically Meaningless' In Treating Mental Health - Study Finds

    But you won't listen to the reasons given when the " expert gods" you need in order to tell you how to function what else do you expect. You have freaks who want to segregate themselves from other ethnic groups and idiots who claim statues of historical past are racist well let that tell the rest of you freaks just what you need to learn oh wait you can't learn that' the whole problem.

    It is also proven there are no " PROVEN CASES " for mental health workers to go off because mental

    Additionally, these diagnoses completely ignore the role of trauma or other unique adverse events a person may encounter in their life.

    Bull, this is always factored in. Are we arguing that someone diagnosed with PTSD isn't affected by their previous experiences in life?

    That a person molested as a child and diagnosed has those things ignored?

    And then what the rest is saying is that because everyone is different that treatment will likely be different from one person to another. That has long been recognized.

    Well, that is exactly true. Many of the people treating others for mental problems either have or will develop mental problems themselves. Psychological evaluations are just an inch above palm reading. You can't base any credible decision on them.

    One needs to separate TREATMENT from DIAGNOSIS.
    Psychiatry has value in the latter; less so for “treatment” without using drugs to pacify the client or “patient”.
