In this episode, I discuss what is wrong with our current model of mental health as a medical “illness” and discuss instead what it is, what positive mental health looks like and touch on the possibilities for treating those with mental distress differently. Some of the references mentioned in the podcast are: Terry Lynch’s The Depression Delusion, Dr. Peter Breggin’s Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal and Your Drug May Be Your Problem, Peter Goetzsche’s book Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime and the article “Toward a New Definition of Mental Health.”
