When the Early Clinical Drug Evaluation Unit meeting was first held over a half century ago, psychopharmacology and indeed modern-day psychiatry were in their infancy, yet there was enormous excitement surrounding the introduction of new medications that appeared to have a profound impact on major psychiatric illnesses. Perhaps the most publicized effect was the control of the florid symptoms of psychosis that was used as a basis for moving the majority of patients with schizophrenia to outpatient settings as an alternative to long-term hospitalizations. Even then, it was realized that much more needed to be done and that it was in the public interest for government to invest in methods for developing effective treatments for serious mental illnesses.
