In this Feb. 5, 2013 photo, a woman walks past a class where a self-help psychological course class, run by Britainís publicly funded health system, is being held in east London. With a long wait to see a psychologist, the British government is turning to the classroom to treat people with mild to moderate mental health problems with a mix of PowerPoint presentations and group exercises. While some dismiss the approach as do-it-yourself therapy, experts say there is convincing evidence that people with conditions like depression and anxiety can be successfully treated without ever seeing a psychologist or a psychiatrist.
