Unfortunately, the overprescription of drugs used to treat psychological disorders in common in the United States. Our mental health system is not set up to really address the long term pain of individuals. Like using a cheat sheet, psychiatrists often prescribe medicine. They rely on this more than cognitive behavioral therapies. It really is sad. Thank you for writing this.
