There was recently a TV documentary in the UK about BP. A psychiatrist was featured giving his words on the illness and an insight into a psychiatric hospital ward.
On another board, hosted by the BBC, I found that this psychiatrist had written...
I was one of the shrinks who took part in the programme'....
I am absoutely flabbergasted to hear a psychiatrist of the 21st cetury describing himself as a shrink!!!! Horrified!!!! My consultant psychiatrist would never dream of using the word. What does he think he is doing with regards to the 'stigma' associated with mental health by using terms of Freudian times?
I can't believe that a 'professional' would use such santcimonious language.
