1. I think of the WHO report that stated that people with Schizophrenia fared better in developing countries than developed countries.

    Teaching local communities in the developed world basically of the medical/scientific model doesn’t sound like a good idea to me.

    • I’m trying to figure out what the actual model being presented here is. In pursuit of that, I have just now ordered Patel’s book; “Where there is no psychiatrist.” I have been unable to get a clear read on the actual approaches being suggested on a ground level; there is clearly some “medical model” thinking, but little or no info on what exactly is being suggested.
