Do you have Anti-Psychiatry Disorder? Ask your doctor.

I suspect Jeffrey Lieberman may be regretting his paranoid, "enemies of mental health" post on the Scientific American blog.  Lieberman is the president of the American Psychiatric Association and was the principal investigator of the CAFE and CATIE studies.

He made serious claims for which he presented no evidence. He has made thinly veiled personal attacks on his critics, without offering anything substantive to counter rationally."
