Problem is most people talking about mental health issues are arm chair therapist, who know nothing about psychology, this includes most politicians. Good luck if you see a doctor. Thanks to Obama and his health care reform these people will now be qualified to be therapist because he is DE-emphasizing degree's because he feels it is barrier for people accessing health care. Currently, the soon to be further expanded Obama care plan is to flood the field with Masters and Bachelors degree people who will be able to make decisions on people's competency based on their limited experience and watered down degree's that now have limited clinical course work (maybe one semester w/ 1-2 courses). Most of these "clinicians" or "therapist" are actually doing case management or child welfare work and know very little about psychiatric diagnosis and have to practice mechanized tx based on mechanized decision making.
