Mental health is important, unfortunately a lot of people can not accept or understand that it is a medical problem. We have heart disease, liver disease etc. Why can the society accept that our brain can be ill. The manifestation of brain (mind) disease can be observed by our behaviour and thought processes. If a diabetic kid has to take insulin for the rest of his life. It is so difficult to accept taking psychiatric medication if the kid mental health is improved. I am not taking about unethical practice of a small number of psychiatrists. Most of us as a psychiatrist, we do in good faith, to heal, to comfort and not too harm, In most of the international psychiatric meetings, there will be an antipsychiatric demonstrating outside the convention hall.
I hope society can see that our brain (mind) as vulnerable as others organs in our bodies can be ill also. thyen@hotmail.com
