In our society, psychiatrists are among the lowest paid physicians/medical doctors/medical researchers/medical professionals. (see Note 1)
However, in Japanese society in Psycho-Pass, mental health is anything but swept under the rug, so in Japanese society in Psycho-Pass:
How lucrative is being a psychiatrist relative to other medical professions? (Well you could answer in absolute amounts, but...)
How lucrative is being a psychiatrist relative to other professions? How about a mental health professional relative to other professions?
Feel free to spoil the figures if any and even the context. I'm expecting some kind of twist to reveal that MHPs are actually paid much higher or much lower than public perception. Or you could just give the public perception of the figures then put the true figures in spoilers or something.
I'm not sure I saw a figure in season 1 (haven't seen past that), but
based on the existence of Sybil system and all that, I'm guessing it takes a lot of mental health expertise to maintain.
Even though Sybil is...
...made up of brains of people with ASPD or something (well technically those who can't be read by Sybil system...or something),
I don't see how mental health expertise isn't as highly valued in other aspects.
People want to keep psycho-pass levels low right?
It's not like there's some
conspiracy about manipulating psycho-passes.
Even if there was a
conspiracy, how would you do that without mental health expertise right?
Note 1: of course ceteris paribus: I'm adjusting for things like country, experience, etc so with sufficiently high probability, a psychiatrist will earn less than a non-psychiatrist doctor assuming they're both in the same state and have the same amount of experience
