This review is from: Thrive: The Power of Evidence-Based Psychological Therapies (Hardcover)
This book urges us all to take notice of the scandal that continues to lie in the midst of health services: the second-class status of mental health service funding. If less than a fifth of people with cancer were provided treatment there would rightly be uproar. This is sadly the state of affairs in the UK NHS, at least in part due to the continuing stigma some people associate with depression, anxiety and other similar difficulties. The authors outline the issues in a very easy style to follow, and crucially propose some good solutions. These include the increased provision of evidence-based psychological therapies (and not just CBT as some would have you believe). Even if you disagree with the suggestions here this book needs to be read, discussed, and put on the political agenda.
