Hello Everyone, I am a MS3 considering going into Psychiatry. I feel that there are several stigmas against psychiatrists. Which include that they are weird or have some psych disorder themselves. I havent done Psych yet so I do not know if this is true. Has anyone encountered this or is just one of those "things" that has no basis but people just love to say. I think if i end up liking Psych the stigma wont other me. Another question, Do most patients with a benign disorder, like anxiety/depression tend to get better or do we medicate them for long periods of time?
