The history of drug treatments, and particularly the discovery of certain molecules, led toan evolution in psychiatric practices. The discovery of the therapeutic properties of chlorpromazine in 1952 by Jean Delay and Pierre Deniker revolutionised the relational process between patients and caregivers.The perspectives are encouraging, notably in the areas of schizophrenia and mood disorders.
