John Cade: the man.

Author information

St Georges Health Service, Kew, Victoria, Australia.


The personal aspects of John Cade's life are little known outside his family and close associates. This paper recounts some of the interesting anecdotes of his life to reveal a loyal, kind and curious person possessed of a quiet spirituality and a humanity that placed great value on his patients' individuality, the lives of his staff as people, and his family. This biographical sketch illuminates the curiosity and motivation in an uncommon man and provides a context in which to appreciate his discovery and application of lithium treatment in psychiatric practice.
