Personality disorders, mental disorders and mental illnesses are all terms to designate some kind of supposed abnormal behavior that needs to be treated. At least, that is what a psychiatrist would say. But who is to say what is normal and what constitutes a so-called disorder?
Psychiatry proclaims that depression is a mental illness which needs to be treated with antidepressants. However, the actual facts about depression do not support this. Of course you can be depressed, but it is not a mental disorder, nor is it a disease. It is neither caused by a chemical imbalance in your brain. Some forms of depression are a normal part of life. Other kinds of depression may need more investigation to find the cause.
One of the first questions that could be asked is: If children have to say “yes” to Ritalin and the effects of Ritalin, will they “Say No to Drugs” later in life?
