It's crap ... I work in healthcare too, and when a person can't qualify for disability any other way, they get it on mood disorder ... It seems somewhat cruel to say but when the mentally ill were mainstreamed back into communities by well meaning social workers with ill conceived social policy the homeless population and by extension criminal behavior exploded perhaps there is something to be said for institutionalizing those who suffer from mental illnesses. Mental institutions today are regulated by DHHS; there should be little concern that they are the fodder of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and its ilk "Nurse Ratchett"
