Mental Health Ill Minds Think Alike
Mental Health Ill Minds Think Alike some people believe that mental illnesses are all the same. If you are diagnosed with a mental illness, then not to worry because everyone else diagnosed is just like you. This is far removed from reality and the truth.
What is so ironic is the same people that are saying this (is often ill themselves) will often say something to the effect when a murder takes place. ‘He is a psychopathic or sociopath. Yet the neighbor down the road who visits every day has a mental illness and when this person visits, or the therapist is overwrought. You do not have a mental illness you have problems like the rest of us.
This is easier to accept than believing that a person has a mental illness. This is nuts since it is only contributing to the problem. The problem with the world is all the people seeking help are doing their job and the people that are making excuses or in denial of mental health, illness existence is in serious need of help. For example, if Johnny visits a counselor knowing that something is not right, he is asking for help.
On the other hand, if that person sitting at the table telling the neighbor nothing is wrong and claims that seeing a counselor is only spending money, then guess who is in real need of help.
The person that does not go to a counselor or ask someone in the world for help is the person that mentally ill more so than the common mental ill. Mentality is nothing to play around with, and since we are all different it can be complicated to determine who is ill.
I have watched as countless patients went to mental health experts and watched them continue to suffer although they collaborated hard with the counselor to find a resolve. The problem is that mental health experts are more concerned about money than the patients are most of the time, and believe they know it all and the patient knows nothing most all the time.
Many therapists are in this field of expertise and if you did a background check on the professional, you are going to see this person is a mental health potential or skip out as well. It does not take a genius to understand mental health, but it takes many idiots to tangle the webs of darkness.
In most instances, mentally ill patients are brilliant individuals that have difficulty managing their lives due to frequent interruptions. Most all the patients that go to mental health experts can talk about their problems freely searching for answers to survive. The problem is (between the lines of communication) lies a fountain of information that can help both the patient and the counselor, but too many times the counselors are entangled in their own webs, they miss the benefits of helping another person out.
Personally, I spent 25 years as a counselor with no results up until the last three years and then I was working harder than the counselor to resolve my own problems was. She was doing a portion of her job, but my strategies were succeeding hers, and I left her behind. Now, if you see what I am saying then you will know that anyone with a mental illness has more of an answer than over half of the professionals in the world.
If you have experience and they have a piece of paper without experience, who knows more? I often have more compassion for mentally ill patients, than I have for the so-called normal and professionals of the world. I have watched many suffering after begging for help, and extraordinarily little result came from it all.
I watched as many counselors blame the patient for the failure, but in all truths, they had a responsibility in this as well. Most counselors are in denial which is a mental health issue, and many people in many professions are in denial, and this my friend is a major cause for mental health issues around the world. Ill minds think alike because someone is influenced while the other source is influencing. A major source for learning and understanding is group therapy.
