Two issues of the South African Journal of Psychiatry applaud a future in which South Africa pursues both better mental health and better attitudes towards psychiatric difficulties and illnesses. The first, a Special Issue of the SAJP, features the Treatment Guidelines of the South African Society of Psychiatrists, which is published by the SAJP without being subsidised by advertisements from the pharmaceutical industry. This is the first publication of its kind in South Africa, resulting from peer consultation and refinement by psychiatrists and carefully compiled and edited by Professors Soraya Seedat and Robin Emsley. It aims to cater to both the public and private sectors of psychiatric practice.
