COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY JAMES MORRIS IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

I am sorry, but mental health care is lagging everywhere.

And the simple reason is that science does not yet understand the causes of most of these problems.

Medicine offers some pills which suppress symptoms in some, and that’s about it.

And some of the pills for some of the conditions, as schizophrenia, are actually rather dangerous.

Talk therapies are mostly an ineffective joke for serious mental illnesses.

Our science has many areas of primitiveness and failure so far, and mental health is a glaring one.

It will be while before meaningful help is available anywhere.
