As in mental health experts like psychologists and psychiatrists? I value their knowledge on the way humans think and behave. I find it a fascinating field of study. But since they are experts on the way people think, behave, and interact, advertisers pay top dollar to figure out a way to create the most manipulative advertisements to get people spending their money on crap they don't need. Propaganda campaigns use psychology techniques to get people to believe lies. Psychiatrists tell their patients they'll feel better if they take daily psychotropic drugs. My psychiatrist told me I couldn't function in society without taking adderall and other pills that did more harm than good; I proved him wrong. I was however brainwashed for years believing the stuff I was told by my doctor.

That's great that you proved them wrong and got back on track on your own. I thought I could do it without add meds but I saw another doc who evaluated my evaluated my condition and she seemed to connect with me a lot better and gave me a prescription that worked, although insurance companies and big pharma are the ones who profit whenever the doctor writes a prescription. Psychiatrists and psychologists are our tools, but we are their tools too when it comes to their paycheck, their masters' profits, and their area of study. Some of them do it to actually help people, and some of them are like mindless drones just making it from one day to the next and filling the gaps in their professions. If you don't like your shrink you kind of have to shop around for a good one, and it's always good to get a second opinion for anything really important and medical related.0

Do we trust mechanics or doctors or fitness experts or other subject matter experts? I would say heed their warnings and obtain other opinions. Based on logic, analyze each opinion and choose the right one that sounds logical.1
