Psychiatry and medication vs. talk therapy

A good article that summarizes the status of psychiatry and the push towards more medication for insurance-accepting providers.

While the author mentions that this is not necessarily a bad thing, I think that having divided care especially with the health care providers not having time and not being reimbursed to talk to each other is just another link that can fail you. You know my advice: if you can afford it, go with the providers that do not accept health insurance and try no medication longer than you think!
