We have it all wrong!
We are mental HEALTH professionals not mental illness professionals! We must stop pathologizing problems, which only creates a barrier to help-seeking. Instead, remember that we must invite opportunities for self-growth using optimism and skillful positive-manipulation with those we guide through the maze of consciousness. We do this with the aim of empowering them to contribute to their overall well-being with a little grit and our gentle nudging; encouraging them to accept that which they cannot change with grace.
