New Study Finds Therapy, Antidepressants Equally Effective At Monetizing Depression

New Study Finds Therapy, Antidepressants Equally Effective At Monetizing Depression: Funny, but unfair. The profits made off of psychotropic medications VASTLY exceed the profits made off of psychotherapy. Pharma companies make billions off of psychotropics. Hospitals make billions off of inpatient care. Psychiatrists make 2-3 times more on average a year than psychologists, and of course masters level counselors make less than that.

Disappointing–I generally expect more objectivity from the Onion. ;)
