IS YOUR MENTAL ILLNESS A GENETIC PROBLEM? 

Mental illness isn't yet accepted like any other illness because there is this perception that anything in the mind can be fixed by a change of lifestyle or attitude, giving it an underrated status. But people don’t appreciate that you need a healthy mind to fix a broken mind.  


Nevermind, I just got insulted and blocked again on Twitter for my usual crime of suggesting to someone with mental illness there is a way they could get better.


I’ve learnt you can be hated for helping too well. Some people just don’t want to improve their lives because change produces fear. Even the idea of changing personality is scary to us domesticated humans who have lost our nomadic freedom and mindset – so very natural to us. We are hunter gatherers, not cattle, and this basic dichotomy causes you subconscious stress.


Right now, a serious resistance to behavioural betterment is becoming commonplace: lots of people are stuck in a rut of the psychology establishments own narrow-minded making. If universities only teach old-fashioned forms of psychology, all based on suspect C.B.T. which is a proven failure, what else can we expect but more and more ill people riddled with angst. Soon, nearly 1 in 3 people will have a mental illness. Life is to be enjoyed, not completed or endured.


“You don’t know what the f**k you’re talking about. I’ve been depressed for years and nothing will ever make me better!” was one real-life angry sub-tweet I received for discovering the kernel of someone’s psychological disorder.


It seems that finding the right answer to people’s mental health problems is not always the correct answer. Such resistance comes from my central theory and the plain empirical fact that mental illness is predominately a social disease, mostly not a genetic one as we are taught. Once a sufferer of mental illness learns and accepts this single truth, you can slowly free yourself from the trap.
