(30 sec read) You can easily test the quality control of any mental health treatment anytime, without confrontation or dispute. How? Ask your therapist or psychiatrist how they manage mistakes, errors and bias internally. If you get responses like “what mistakes” or “what bias”… RUN!

It’s also good to establish a system of accountability via peer review, independently if possible or internally at least. If they cry “HIPAA”, Jon Doe the names and push back. This means having someone to go to anytime disagreement or poor leadership arises (in treatment), or just getting second opinions on approach & diagnostics.

As we humans go, mistakes will absolutely occur. A lot. And no one is above bias.
