Japanese Drug Advertisements

This is just one example of the many Japanese drug advertisement images that are available here at the Japanese Gallery of Psychiatric Art. The online gallery shows Japanese drug advertisements from 1956-2003. You can read the official press release for Lullan (the example above) here. Life certainly looks idyllic on anti-psychotics - if you believe the adverts that is.

This is a fascinating collection of images. It seems to me that there is an increased emphasis on infantalism in these ads compared with those in the British Journal of Psychiatry.
