The truth about psychiatric labelling of young people in Australia is shocking
I was shocked and horrified that this young man in dire need of career counselling and wise and sincere personal support was assessed as having some kind of psychotic mental illness. Fortunately, this is apparently only a training video. Unfortunately, this indefensible over-diagnosis is held up as professional best-practice. One can only wonder how much more "at risk" of psychosis Nick might have been judged to be if he'd been a religious person or a synaesthete.
