Mental Health

I think that each person should have a clear record of goals, how to reach those goals, expected stay for therapy or hospital, medications, what they should say, everything.  Not some nebulous "we'll see"  Psychiatrists take advantage of the healthcare system by providing nebulous, nonquantifiable information.  They have already started classifying it, the DSM, they surely can quantify it, like any other illness.  This would save the US healthcare system thousands of dollars, give mental patients more incentive, and prevent readmittance.
