"Terribly inadequate."

I met three different so called " psychiatrists " on my visits to glanville house when suffering from depression , very bad depression. On all three visits after finding the courage to leave my home to go there looking for real help I was faced by each of them with the same tedious questions from the " book " of psychiatry, we all know what they are from 1 to 10 . No follow on from previous visits because they like to do things " their own way " . The results were they just put you on different medication than the last " shrink " . People please be very aware that some of the drugs they give you may make things worse, and they will never tell you what a nightmare they are to try and come off of.
