Your original statement discounted the entire field. However, your subsequent posts have only focused on medication. Psychotherapy makes up a huge portion of the psychiatry and psychology fields.

And also, while I don't know anything about ADHD. For other mental diseases, there is a plethora of 'empirical evidence' to support their diagnoses.
