SAMHSA is really pessimistic about the long term growth of mental health disability.
SAMSHA is forecasting that mental health “disorders” will be the leading cause of disability by the year 2020. This doesn’t need to happen. If we create systems that promote full recovery, we can eliminate many mental health disorders. The Open Dialogue method in Finland has almost completely emptied their mental hospitals. We can greatly reduce disability with effective treatments. If disability is increasing, then our current treatments must not be that effective.
