Psy­chi­a­try is the med­i­cal spe­cialty de­voted to the di­ag­no­sis, pre­ven­tion, and treat­ment of men­tal di­s­or­ders. Th­ese in­clude var­i­ous mal­adap­ta­tions re­lated to mood, be­hav­ior, cog­ni­tion, and per­cep­tions.

[Question] If some­one you loved was ex­pe­rienc­ing un­remit­ting suffer­ing (re­lated to a con­stel­la­tion of multi-di­men­sional fac­tors and pro­cesses, those of which in­clude anoma­lous states of con­scious­ness and an ia­tro­genic men­tal health sys­tem), what would you think and what would you do?
