Kids and labels and pills

“When you have got a kid with ADHD and oppositional defiance disorder and depression and anxiety disorder...what this says is not that he has got four disorders, but that there is something wrong with the kid and people haven’t properly understood what it is yet.”

This is a quote from the Australian child psychiatrist Jon Jureidini quoted in the book Speed Up & Sit Still by Martin Whitely MLA. I have published my review of that book at my other blog:
