Many Psychiatrists Self-Prescribe, Study Says

This story never says how many, “many” is. It also suggests that psychiatrists suffer Major Depression at rates higher than the general population and, interestingly, offers an environmental explanation for their depression that they are treating with meds.

The angle I was most interested in was what this means for patients, in terms of counter-transference and diagnostic patterns. This wasn’t addressed.
