Journal of Psychology. What power do psychiatric diagnoses have? Part №1

Freud states that there is no such thing as being abnormal. It may be strange, however considering that he said that in one way or another we are all abnormal. There is a stigma that exists with being diagnosed with a mental illness and considering how with each new version of ICD and DSM that comes out, we see more and more disorders or conditions being added to the fray. While some of these are necessary, the labelling of these people is something to be pondered upon. When we avoid labelling someone, we see them for who they are, their identity as that of an individual, a human being and not that of a person with an abnormality. I hope we find a new way to communicate regarding mental illnesses.
