Abstract

The number of diagnoses of mental illness has been increasing for years, especially in the wealthy industrialized nations. What continues to be overlooked is the massive influence of the lobby of the psychotherapeutic "industry", which has long and steadily earned good money from hastily misdiagnosed patients. However, this can be a matter of moderate to severe malpractice.
