Wessely has been so successful at psychologising ME, lining his own pockets and furthering his own career whilst saving the government a fortune, that the psychologisation of physical illness and patient-blaming is now being rolled out for everyone. Let's get 'em young and set up a school to CBT pipeline. I wondered when he was elected president of the Royal Society of Medicine whether there may be some grand new scheme coming along with him in a starring role. And all under the guise of helping those with mental health needs. Those with real needs will now see their much-needed resources diluted to cope with an influx of children sent for therapy because they complained of having a headache, or yawned, or gave the dinner lady a funny look. Why don't they just criminalize illness and have done with it?
