Our expert says:
Psychopathy is so often a disorder one guy has, and which OTHER people then suffer from. ANy competent psychiatrist or psychologist ought to be able to assess him for this. Whoever was treating his depression one would hope would have picked this up, but then if they only had what HE told them to go on, he wouldn't be likely to have revealed the signs. Indeed, he may be reluctant to see anyone now. Psychopathy as such wouldn't impede his recovery from depression, unless it encouraged him not to actually take his medicines. Psychopathy is very hard to treat, and would need to efforts of a very skilled and experienced shrink, probably a psychologist, and understandably most shrinks would prefer not to deal with psychopaths. Treatment is imposible unless the person recognizes sincerely that they have a problem, and sincerely works in therapy to improve their condition
