Now is not the time to cast aspersions on the other. Neither is it the time to be self-critical. The psychiatric disorders provo case file could tell you that having a psychiatric disorder is nothing new. See this as reassuring news in the sense that you are not alone. If you have been diagnosed with a condition just know that there are many more others out there just like you. Although your resident psychiatrist will not likely be making this much known to you.
Of course, it goes without saying that there is always going to be doctor/patient privilege. In the psychiatric area, this makes sense because always just remember that the patient is revealing things to the psychiatrist that no one else knows about and should know about. It is not a case of keeping things secret or leading a secret life. Particularly when that patient’s mental health has been restored, he or she retains that right to privacy.
In many tragic cases it remains the case that this is going to be in the patient’s best interests in terms of keeping him or her safe. The psychiatrist is morally and ethically obligated to protect the patient from any further physical or emotional abuse. And sometimes even, the emotional abuse is a lot more harmful. Talk about being scarred for life. Even in mild cases of mental instability, patients need to be able to return to a productive life.
They need job security just as much as anyone else. But as always, there is ignorance and prejudice out there. It comes back later to the patient that the problem wasn’t always hers. It was society’s. The dawning of this event can be liberating but remains sad.
