BSP 102 is an interview with Dr. Allen Frances, author of "Saving Normal: An Insider's Revolt Against Out-of-Control Psychiatric Diagnosis, DSM-5, Big Pharma, and the Medicalization of Ordinary Life." We talk about the factors that are driving the over diagnosis of certain mental illnesses while at the same time many people who really need psychiatric care do not receive it. This is a sobering discussion that closes with practical advice for both patients and those who care for them.
