Wow. Do you have an issue with psychiatrists? Seriously, though, she's just doing her job. Almost none of what you say is relevant. She has a patient who has been remanded into her care under suicide watch. Her only obligation is to treat her patient, and evaluate her for possible release in 72 hours. If she allowed a cop to bully her into releasing her patient, she would be guilty of the most blatant possible malpractice. And the reason Linden was committed is also irrelevant. She is there, and she is there under a legal pretext. Again, if she decides to void the commitment process because a suspended cop with a history of psychiatric issues and her partner insist she's really fine (all evidence to the contrary), major-league malpractice. She was asking Linden about the case because last time, it was a case very much like this one that literally drove her insane. What could possibly be more relevant? She was trying to get Linden to see that she is repeating the same pattern as last time. I think the psychiatrist is doing her job exactly correctly; yes, Linden was framed, but the psychiatrist has no way of knowing that, and Linden did about half the framing herself. My take is that the psychiatrist is an innocent victim of the writers' need to drag the case out yet another week.
