That's a great resource, thanks, it certainly makes for bleak reading. :cry:

The section entitled "Medicine at the End of the World" concludes with the statement; "The practice of medicine would go back 200 years."

Free kindle books, I think, from the bibliography ... I downloaded the AusPrep book, but never looked at the bibliography at that time. Today I did, and disappeared down a fairly large internet rabbit hole.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Where-There-No ... ext&sr=1-5
This edition is £0.00, first published in 2018. The original 2005 edition is still on sale in kindle form, for £7 something.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Where-There-Ch ... ext&sr=1-6
Also £0.00.

I logged out of Amazon so I could post "clean" links on here, so I haven't even snagged them myself yet, let alone read them. And, full disclosure here, I don't really trust psychiatry as a profession (psychiatrists don't trust people in my former profession either - counsellors and therapists). But its good to know your options, and "Where There Is No Counsellor" is yet another book I'd like to write :D

There are freely available pdfs among the recommendations in the Austere Medicine handbook - I'll be working on those this evening, I think.

I followed up on Vikram Patel, and came across The Mental Health Innovation Network, jointly headquartered at WHO in Geneva and the London School of Tropical Medicine. Patel is a professor of International Mental Health/Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow in Clinical Science. Fairly highly qualified, then :D

I carried on mooching about on the Mental Health Innovation Network, and found a page of Training Resources: https://www.mhinnovation.net/resources? ... type%3A199 There are others, but these are the training ones.

I do think this sort of thing is going to become increasingly important - anything funded by a local authority in the UK is under threat, with funding having been reduced by 50% since 2011. And people talk about the NHS having been ringfenced, and I just don't believe it.
