Arash Javanbakht, M.D., a board-certified psychiatrist at Wayne State University. The mental health of President Donald Trump has been under question by different groups since Trump took office. One such group calls themselves "Duty to Warn" and describes themselves as "An association of mental health professionals advocating Trump be removed under the 25th Amendment as psychologically unfit." Earlier this week Politico reported that a Yale psychiatrist met with members of Congress to discuss the President's mental health. Should psychiatrists give professional opinions about public figures they have not examined in person? Arash Javanbakht explains the danger of Psychiatrists giving a diagnosis of politicians.
