The Problem With “Mental Health”

There are certain things about the whole mental health field that seem like a bunch of “BS”.

It seems like the mental health field attempts to be like the medical field. There are diagnosis for various “mental disorders”.

No one ever wrote a book called “The Myth of Broken Bones”.

If you have a skin infection, you aren’t always labeled as having a skin infection after the infection has been treated.

If you have a broken bone, you aren’t always labeled as having a broken bone, even after the cast has been removed and you go back to doing whatever it is that you do.

Yet, it seems with certain mental health diagnosis, you are labeled as just having them. You have this! Are you that? Is it a defect within your mind? Is your mind sick? Or… ??????

I’m going to end this here right now. Maybe more later.
