Whither Psychiatry in 2005 and Beyond?
So when Pilate saw that he could do nothing, but rather that a riot was beginning, he took some water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, "I am innocent of this man’s blood; see to it yourselves." Then the people as a whole answered, "His blood be on us and on our children!" So he released Barabbas for them: and after flogging Jesus, he handed him over to be crucified.
In an article in this morning’s Irish Times "Scandal of our mental health services," Mary Raftery uses the phrase "….the area of psychiatric care, for which, of course, the Minister has ultimate responsibility." Let me point out immediately that I do not want to cast Mary Harney in the role of Pontius Pilate.
