I know there are huge objections to the use of what is effectively a psychiatric classification system as a way of describing what we treat. I have done this because once the links are working we will find ways to access other databases on prevalence , studies etc that hold their information in similar ways.
Physical Health collegues might want to add in more categories
In time we can put up another page of other difficulties we deal with -existential, social problems etcLifeartist 14:58, 5 February 2006 (UTC)
There is a lot of work to be done on this page to redo the link of the named disorder to point to a page that goes onto link to
epidemiological evidence treatment protocols /approaches outcome studies etc

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but i'd really value an article on how to decide on which of psychotherapy to use on a patient, as in Which approach to use. If anyone could write such an article, i'd be grateful indeed -adeesh 25 September 2006
In time this question should be considered for each problem area, while overall we will be looking to develop a more integrative veiw to help inform treatment choice. Do join us if you think you can help out.Dr Joe Kiff - User:Lifeartist (talk) 14:51, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
Proposed change of topic nameEdit
I found a link to this title and followed it, having zero idea of what it could possibly be but some list of presenting complaints. Was so astonished (but delighted) to find it was actually the directory of mental/emotional problems as categorized under the ICD system utiilzed so widely outside the States.
But I feel the title should begin with the ICD initials or such - just as there should be another page of the DSM directory.
I am having a great deal of satisfaction in exploring this wiki and have many ideas regarding publicizing it. --Cricket's Courage 09:34, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
