How do we address the unmet need for psychiatric services? Do we define need by symptom, diagnosis, or disability? Do we have sufficient data to recognize the scope of the problem? Have we the skills and knowledge to effectively treat these conditions? Do we have the resources to treat them all? And if not, how do we choose? These are the questions posed by the distinguished international panel of contributors to Unmet Need in Psychiatry: Problems, Resources, Responses.
