Mental Illnesses Be Treated?
illnesses are definable, diagnosable and treatable. In fact,
psychiatry has a higher success rate than many other branches
of medicine. For example, the treatment success rate is 85%
for major depression; 80% for panic disorder and bipolar (manic
depressive) illness; and 60% for schizophrenia. By contrast,
success rates for common heart treatments, such as angioplasty
and atherectomy, are only 41% and 52%.
