Psychiatrists Deal Exclusively With Mental "Disorders", Not Proven Diseases

While mainstream physical medicine treats diseases, psychiatry can only deal with "disorders". In the absence of a known cause or physiology, a group of symptoms seen in many different patients is called a disorder or syndrome.

Harvard Medical School's Joseph Glenmullen, M.D., says that in psychiatry, "all of its diagnoses are merely syndromes [or disorders], clusters of symptoms presumed to be related, not diseases."

As Dr. Thomas Szasz, professor of pychiatry emeritus, observes, "There is no blood or other biological test to ascertain the presence or absence of a mental illness, as there is for most bodily diseases."
