    “It’s not surprising that when therapists were asked to use DSM criteria [Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders] on healthy people, a quarter of them also got a psychiatric diagnosis,” writes Prof. Peter C. Gotzsche, MD in Chapter 2 What does it mean to be mentally ill? of his excellent book Deadly Psychiatry and Organised Denial.
