Emotional and Mental Health Myths Abound
The myths about emotional/mental health persist because, the psychiatric profession labels everything a disease rather than emotional/mental distress. The truth is emotional/mental issues can not be resolved with prescriptions or talk therapy. How do we know what’s real and what’s nothing but made up misconceptions?
In 2010 after the publication of his book, Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America, Robert Whitaker, was not welcomed within the psychiatry establishment. Whitaker documented evidence that standard drug treatments were making people worse over the long term, and he detailed the lack of science behind the psychotropic treatments.
Dr. Prakash Masand, a psychiatrist and former consulting professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke University, and president of Global Medical Education, says the only way to eliminate the myths that have been attached to emotional/mental distress is to separate truth from myth:
Some of the most common myths and their truths are:
Once depression or bipolar disorder is diagnosed you will never achieve your full potential
Some of the most successful and prominent people in the world were depressed or diagnosed with the label bipolar disorder including: Oprah Winfrey, Brad Pitt, Winston Churchill, Beethoven, and Isaac Newton
With psychotropic prescriptions suicide is rare in the U.S.
Suicide is a major preventable issue. More people die of suicide than in car accidents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2010 there were 33,687 deaths from motor vehicle crashes and 38,364 suicides.
Treatment for emotional/mental distress is a cop-out for weak people
Treatment is necessary for emotional/mental distress if the issue persists more than 30 – 45 days. Like any physical dysfunction emotional and mental distress is an equivalent to any physical diagnosis from Abdominal pain to Viral Infections and everything in between.
All people with schizophrenia are dangerous with no hope for recovery.
Only a small proportion of people with schizophrenia might be violent. Schizophrenics can recover provided the emotional/mental root cause is addressed at the subconscious level.
Talk therapy such as: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Counseling coupled with psychotropic drugs, as needed, can resolve all emotional/mental distress.
Hypnosis Comparison Study: Psychotherapy: Theory, Research and Practice
American Health Magazine (1969) reported the following findings from a study by Alfred A. Barrios, PhD. An updated study “Hypnotherapy: A Reappraisal” by Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. published in Psychotherapy: Theory, Research and Practice (Spring, 1970) clearly points out – Hypnosis is more effective and works more quickly than traditional talk-therapy or psychoanalysis. http://www.stresscards.com/esspsychotherapy.htm http://bit.ly/gc4hcr

ADD and ADHD is a new way to explain bad behavior
ADD and ADHD is precipitated by an emotional/mental trauma with a well described constellation of symptoms and proven treatment provided the emotional/mental root cause is addressed at the subconscious level.
