There is clear evidence of
‘psychiatry-bashing' throughout medical schools by many groups of
students and teachers. Students starting medical school with
an interest in mental health considering the possibility of
becoming a psychiatrist are often put off their career choice by
influential consultants in other specialties.
Despite this, students see learning
about mental illness as an integral part of their medical degree
and there was overwhelming support for the Anti-BASH campaign at
the 2016 National Student
Psychiatry Conference hosted by Edinburgh PsychSoc.
