ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on the scarcity of high-quality evidence for mental health care in Canada. They contend that the current state of limited or missing evidence-based researches in psychiatry affects the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. They note that psychiatry needs to integrate research into care by conducting large-scale trials and implementing the results, and treatment for mental illness, as for medical diseases, should be more than a guess.
