This March 16, 2014 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article talks about the issues surrounding the nationwide shortage of Psychiatrists.  The article not only talks about the lack of respect the profession receives, but also goes on to describe some of the efforts being made in trying to fill the growing gap between the demand for mental health services and the shortage of Psychiatrists. The shortage includes those who specialize in adults and kids so all ages are effected by the shortage.
