    You guys are good! Those kinds of letters: informative, fact-based - warm my heart. I think it's really hard for people to ignore stuff like that. What I think works is to highlight the gap between CBT's results and a real treatment option that returns one to health. Symptomatic improvement for some people is not a return to functioning and shouldn't be presented like it is - but I think people are mixed up between the two. OF course highlighting how often it doesn't work and the fact that it can have very negative effects is equally important. That's the kind of stuff I think will get across and bring us to the next phase - finding real treatments. Thanks :D
