David Healy “likened psychiatry’s attitude toward its faltering legitimacy to the Vatican’s widely derided response to its child sex abuse scandal by priests — essentially that psychiatry is brushing off justifiable concerns as hype instead of dealing with the source of the problem,” according to‘s coverage of his talk at the APA’s second-largest annual meeting on Thursday. “My concern is not that you’ve been paid by industry,” Healy said, “but that you’ve been fooled by industry. The key conflict is whether people are hiding data from you.”
