Working in Boston in the late 1980s, I received a telephone
call from Byram Karasu, M.D. Byram was to chair the workgroup
writing the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA)
first Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Patients With
Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and honored me with an
invitation to join. The first MDD Guideline was published
in 1993. Byram chaired the workgroup that prepared the second
edition, which was published in 2000.
