The Philosophy of Mental Illness   K9SacgoinsNU9QbwlO0fejl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBV9ip2J1EIeUzA9paTSgKmv

We are all familiar with the mainstream philosophy of mental illness because we are all aware of the current methods of treating it. We have drugs for depression; drugs for psychosis; drugs for anxiety and so on. Issuing prescriptions for drugs to treat mental illness is a demonstration of a mental health philosophy that views mental disorders as disorders of the brain. This philosophy has roots both in capitalism and materialism.
