SAMHSA Stakeholder Feedback

What do you think are some of the most noteworthy accomplishments and changes in the behavioral health field over the past several years?

Advent of Positive Psychology--focusing on what the brain does right!

Focusing on what the brain does right promises protocols that highlight and utilize the unique strengths and resiliencies of people who live with mood disorders. Even without modern diagnostic criteria or treatments, Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill were extraordinary leaders. Focusing on mental "illness" perpetuates negative stereotypes and stigma. Reframing the mental health conversation through the positive psychology lens will shift our thinking and our minds.

        Would you like to prove there is something my brain does wrong? Or do you just take that for granted in your zeal for this belief system of psychiatry?

        I think what you've said above is nothing but hot air. Even LINCOLN is not safe from your beyond the grave baseless claims about 'brain disease'.

        The 'mental health conversation' as you call it, is not a conversation at all. It is propaganda 24/7.
