In a severely depressed, manic, obsessive, anxious, or psychotic state, one's judgment is often skewed, if not impaired. I think the point made by Squiggles is that a professional might be in a better frame of mind to make decisions or offer interpretations than is the suffering patient.

You took the words right out of my mouth Scott. :-)

Of course, we do have to rely on the probability that the doctor will be in a better state of mind than the patient, but I don't think that is too generous a supposition.
