What To Do: A multifaceted healing—mind, body, spirit process specifically focused on mental, emotional, physical and/or sexual abuse and diligent work is the most effective process; wherein the survivor can replenish her/his mental, emotional, physical, spiritual identity and empowerment. The symptoms which are diagnosed as disease, genetic or a disorder is the psyche’s message system that something is awry and needs to be addressed at the root cause….the mental, emotional, physical and/or sexual trauma.
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?
“There is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bull___. I mean, you just can’t define it,” states Allen Frances, MD, lead editor for the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-IV). As DSM-IV is the imperial doctrine used by psychiatrists in diagnosing mental disorders, prescribing powerful psychotropics to the masses, and commanding health care dollars, this is quite a confession. “We made mistakes that had terrible consequences,” Frances concedes.
