Mental health culture has gone too far, says Mel Stride 
Work and Pensions Secretary unveils plan to get 150,000 people back into a job as benefits bill rises.

I agree ! Mel Stride echoes the problems with the medicalisation of distress. If Stride really wants to solve this problem he needs to look at the behaviour of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. This body rejected the genius of Franco Basaglia (see right panel on this page) and are still preventing the work of R D Laing and Loren Mosher (also right panel) being used to literally cure “schizophrenia”. So called Schizophrenia is simply human distress in an acute form. With this understanding Stride could have Britain becoming more healthy and working better than it ever has before.
