Al Jazeera America has just published a really outstanding piece on ketamine treatment for depression. Thank you to the author, Tim Bella, for telling the story in a way that balances the perspectives of doctors, researchers, and patients. Too many articles on ketamine try to manufacture controversy by hyping researchers’ concerns, which attracts readers but casts the treatment in a false light. But Tim’s article does not rely on this gimmick. It gives voice to actual patients whose lives have been transformed, and it also explains the history and unknowns in a straightforward way. Bravo.
