We dont necessarily need more psychitarists; if specialists are rare, educate and empower the common man/ generalists to deliver specialised services.

Elizabeth Neatherway's curator insight, March 21, 2014 1:09 PM

This TED talk really opens up people’s eyes to the statistics of mental illness. It is a very personal topic to me and the fact that not even half the people get the specialist care they need in order to get better is very saddening. Suicide is the most common cause of death for young people in every country, why is this fact not a reason to do something about it? Maybe more psychiatrists is the answer instead of making more and more cut backs on the NHS, it is clear that these people need help as mental illness is just as serious as any other illness. Dare To Care.
