Our profession and our patients have been under siege, but I don’t sense a great deal of professional psychiatric patriotism. We have been threatened by economically driven health care, excessive government intrusion, destructive state and national legislation, and legal actions. Many of these threats aren’t palpable to some members. They don’t fully appreciate the work of district branches, Areas, and APA in dealing with most of the threats effectively and making progress with the others. Some members recognize the threats, believe we haven’t done enough about a particular threat or for them personally, attack the organization, and/or quit.
