My take on the psychiatrists is that they have a difficult job - assessing mood, risk and response to treatment must be extremely subjective.

That said, I suspect it's no different from other branches of medicine - ie. pattern recognition. You make a diagnosis, treat it and then if things get better then you carry on. If they don't then you re-evaluate.

To some extent, I suppose it doesn't matter so much if you understand what's going on underneath as long as people get better.
