https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/15/opinion/preventing-mental-illness.html This is an opinion piece that endorses the Biopsychosocial model for understanding mental/psychiatric illness. We are primed to react negatively to "BPS" because it is used as an assertion to frame CFS and other 'MUS' as psychogenic/psychosomatic. I think this article is referring more to BPS as truism - people are affected by lots of different things and different frames of analysis can be helpful in understanding suffering. You can read the quotes below to get a good idea of what the author has in mind. Ultimately, I feel this article is well-meaning, but it seeks to address things that are beyond the scope of psychiatric/medical practice, and more into the realm of public health and social services - or just, you know, left up to a person living there own life as an individual with some level of agency. The implied paternalism is worrying. There is also the strong undertone of Freudian drivel. Useful analyses of how the the medical system and social services can best interact to produce the best outcomes are surely welcome - but you probably want some reliable data for that, not just a nice truism.
