Management of mental health often seems intuitive, so many interventions have been developed and rolled out on the basis of good intentions rather than good science eg, post-traumatic stress disorder counselling after natural disasters. We do not deny the role of clinical expertise and the art of the individual psychiatrist, but we believe that studies aimed at altering the status quo should be rigorous in planning, execution, and communication.
