On the ground, better recognition of the illness in all its forms by GP's would be a good start. Then maybe some real early intervention would decrease the need for hospital admissions... The saddest thing I hear is when someone says "I have been ill since I was 12, or 13, or 14" and they are now 30, or 40 or 50!
Early treatment is essential for long term recovery... AND recovery is possible even if you have been ill for a long time.... it is just harder.
