When is it correct to prescribe Psychiatric Drugs?

We hear various opinions about psychiatric drugs. Some say they are over-prescribed, some say they are correctly prescribed. Tom Cruise got into hot water with the pharmaceutical industry for saying they should never be prescribed.

Rather than answer the question I'll leave it to a psychiatrist, Douglas C. Smith, M.D., who has a very clear opinion and gives a very convincing argument to back up that opinion: When should psychiatric drugs be prescribed?
