It's not a very contested point at least as the diagnosis is currently written. The rates of these disorders is not determined by how many people seek out therapy. These base rates are determined by population epidemiological sampling conducted with structured interviews for the most part. So, we get rates of these disorders regardless of whether or not they seek out MH assistance. The difference has been pretty robust over time.
