Yale psychiatrist Dr. Brandy Lee recently hosted a conference on the mental health community’s response to the apparent psychological disorders of President Donald Trump — and in a recent interview with Salon, she explained why she and some of her colleagues are willing to risk censure or even having their licenses taken away to diagnose the dangerous president.
“This situation has come to such a critical level,” Lee told Salon when asked why she is compelled to speak out about the president. “In fact, a state of emergency exists and we could no longer hold back. We have an obligation to speak about Donald Trump’s mental health issues because many lives and our survival as a species may be at stake.”
