This innovative book, edited by two Australian academic psychiatrists, considers ways to resolve the imbalance between the demand and supply of mental health services. Treatment services in most countries reach only a minority of people identified as suffering from a mental disorder. Few countries can provide adequate health services for all the mentally ill, yet none has developed a rational system to decide who should be treated. Could we develop a staged treatment process to reach all in need? If not, how do we decide who to treat? What should the criteria be for deployment of scarce treatment resources? How do we determine such criteria? In this pioneering work, an international team of 60 eminent psychiatrists, epidemiologists, health administrators, economists and health planners (including Australia) seek to improve the current health system.

Prozac, Paxil, Zolofit - turn on your TV and you are likely to see a commercial for one of the many selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) on the market. Explores the history of SSRIs in the United States and the surrounding controversies. When Prozac was released in the late 1980s, Healy was among the psychiatrists who prescribed it. But he soon observed that some of his patients became agitated and even attempted suicide. Could the new wonder drug actually be making patients worse? Draws on his own research and expertise to demonstrate the potential hazards. He intersperses case histories with insider accounts of the research leading to the development and approval of SSRIs as a treatment for depression. Clearly demonstrates that the problems go much deeper than a side-effect of a particular drug. The pharmaceutical industry tells us that SSRIs safely treat depression, anxiety, and a host of other mental problems. But the cure may be worse than the disease. ISBN: 0814736971.
