Authors Kathol and Gatteau in their book Healing Body and Mind: A Critical Issue for Health Care Reform: 2007 55 and Cloninger, in the book Feeling Good: The Science of Well-Being,56 discuss depression treatment from many viewpoints. They suggest that:

  • Available treatments are palliative and incomplete, not curative.

  • Most patients with common mental disorders remain ill with varying degrees of disability despite conventional biomedical and psychosocial treatments.

  • The science of mental health has been stagnated by its division into two parts: the biomedical part studies the brain, the psychosocial part studies the mind.

  • Psychosocial deals with thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are understood as adaptive responses motivated by external and internal events.
