Psychiatry

One of the toughest issues in providing mental health services is the frequent battle against the stigma of mental illness. After all, many of these illnesses are problems with the workings of the brain. Most people do not hesitate to go to their physician and get (sometimes lifelong) treatment when they are sick. Receiving treatment for depression, autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and so many other illnesses should be no different than going to a physician and being treated for heart disease, diabetes, flu or even an infection.
