Mental Health Versus Brain Health

While mental health and brain health are two different things, they do affect each other.

  • Brain health assures the unobstructed and unimpeded use of the mind, whether or not the mind is healthy.
  • Mental health assures that one takes care of themselves physically, which includes taking care of the brain.

Why the APA and the NIMH Fail At Mental Health

The reason the APA (American Psychiatric Association) and the NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health) fail at mental health is that they try to treat two different sciences as the same science. That is, they try to treat brain science and mind science as the same thing.

Brain science and mind science are not the same thing.

Brain science deals with the health of the brain. Mind science deals with the wholeness of the mind.

Now, health and wholeness are two different things.

Wholeness is not health.

Wholeness is the completeness of the complex (a set of interacting things) of abilities of the human mind.

To be mentally ill is actually, to one degree or another, to be mentally disabled. Mental illness (mental disability) requires rehabilitation ([mental] retraining), not recovery ([physiological] rebuilding).

The main idea of wholeness is:

Complete ability.

The main idea of mental health, which is a poorly chosen term for what we are really dealing with and which should be called mental wholeness is:

Complete ability of the mind.

Now, what the stupid, moronic APA and NIMH are trying to do is to give people mental ability through drugs . What utter nonsense!
