According to an Expert by Experience and Carer:

The discussion about transferring research into evidence-based practice is a very valid one, especially with regard to the Schizophrenia Commission and NICE guidelines recommendation that psychological therapies should be offered as a matter of course, alongside pharmaceutical interventions, from the very start of the treatment..... not left until the drugs, with all their acknowledged side effects, have 'stabilised' the poor patient into a state of readiness to 'receive' talking therapy. In our area, the waiting lists for psychological therapies for people with severe and enduring mental illness are running at around 2 years.
