PSO who recently shot wife and son of a Judge might have been suffering form “Neurosis” – A mental illness which Psychiatrists have stopped treating/recognising from 1980. …!
In 1980, American Psychiatrists Association decided that we will treat only those mental illnesses where outside symptoms are visible. Since then treatments became “Symptom Centric”.. instead of beaing “Cause Centric”..They removed word “Neurosis” from their treatment manual called DSM. This was a controversial move then, but now mental health treatments have become fully commercial were only symptoms are treated..
Probably Indian Psychiatrists too follow this. Thus a large number of mentally ill people go unidentified, undetected and untreated.
If you wish to know more about “Neurosis” you can search on Google.
In my view, the laws in this area needs reforms.
