Hi Jacques 12,
The problem you describe is common, and it is fortunate that there are good people like you who are sensitive enough to notice it and good enough to try to help others. Sadly, there are indeed many GP's who received poor or little training in psychiatry despite how common and significant such problems are, and who don't really know how to deal with them and are perhaps over-influenced by which pretty drug company rep they last saw, selling 3-blindmycin or Wonderzetine. But feel good about your helpfulness ; would that there were more people around with your sensitivity and skills. And look after yourself --- maybe some CBT counselling could help you remain well and help you help others even more successfully ?
