The biopsychosocial model (BPSM) has been the foundation of psychiatric practice since it was first conceived four decades ago. However, recent advances in technology have led mental health professionals, as a fraternity, to turn to a purely biomedical model of disease, and remedy. We trace the lineage of the BPSM, examine its validity in today's scenario, and argue for the urgent need to reintegrate this model in current and future practice.
