The psychiatrists of the NPA (the National Psychiatric Association) are referred to as “Newminders.”  They are real world psychiatrists.  They study the books and work 100% in the real world.  The psychiatrists of the APA (the American Psychiatric Association) are referred to as “Absentminders.”  They are textbook psychiatrists.  They work in a world of books and have very little experience of the real world.

 

Now, per the 2008 Psychiatric Sector Comparison Report (link not yet active):

 

  1. Number Treated

 

    1. The Newminders, the NPA (the National Psychiatric Association) treated 10 million people from August 2007 to August 2008.

 

    1. The Absentminders, the APA (the American Psychiatric Association) treated ½ million people from August 2007 to August 2008.

 

  1. Recovery Rate

 

    1. The Newminders, the NPA (the National Psychiatric Association) saw 9.9 million (9,900,000) people recover from August 2007 to August 2008.

 

    1. The Absentminders, the APA (the American Psychiatric Association) saw .1 million (100,000) people recover from August 2007 to August 2008.

 

  1. Brain Medications (Psychotropic Drugs)

 

    1. The Newminders, the NPA (the National Psychiatric Association) treated 1 out of 1000 people with brain medications (psychotropic drugs) from August 2007 to August 2008.

 

    1. The Absentminders, the APA (the American Psychiatric Association) treated 999 out of 1000 people with brain medications (psychotropic drugs) from August 2007 to August 2008.

 

In all three of these areas – number treated, recovery rate, and brain medications (psychotropic drugs) – the Newminders, the NPA (the National Psychiatric Association) beat the Absentminders, the APA (the American Psychiatric Association) 1000 to 1.
