From the editor's desk", has said he would not have contemplated becoming a psychiatrist if psychiatry had been a branch of neurology, which is relevant to a previous post. He has recently been at a conference in Belgrade "where speaker after speaker predicted the demise of our profession or its absorption into neurology or some other discipline, as the funding for mental illness and respect for psychiatrists gets progressively less". This is again relevant to another previous post.
Like me he's disturbed by these trends. Let's hope he's right to be optimistic nonetheless.
