ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increasing use of antidepressants in England. In 2007, a total of 36 million prescriptions were given out. According to politicians and experts working in the field of depression, it was important that alternative therapies should be made available to counter the increasing reliance on antidepressants. A Mental Health Foundation analysis revealed that 22 of the 25 highest-prescribing primary care trusts (PCTs) are in the north of England, while 23 of the 25 lowest prescribers are in the London area.
