I receive no funding or gift items from pharmaceutical companies. This is out of concern that this practice may well skew thinking
toward medications and away from other interventions (psychotherapy, work and social rehabilitation, holistic body-mind practices, etc,
depending on circumstances) which are often well-proven but have no equivalent financial incentives driving. And also, medications can clearly be useful sometimes.

*Note that evidence seems iffy as to whether going through general standardized hoops for medical specialty board certification has any correspondence with outcomes. See, for example:

Does specialty board certification influence clinical outcomes?  Grosch EN. J Eval Clin Pract. 2006 Oct;12(5):473-81.doi:10.1111/j.1365-2753.2006.00556.x.PMID: 16987109,
