For several years now, I’ve been quietly sharing ways for people to heal mood disorders without using pharmaceuticals. I’ve been coaching clients in San Diego and via Skype. But I still have this nagging feeling that I’m not reaching enough people. I want EVERYONE to know that there many safe, natural, effective ways to approach mental health.
There is currently no centralized movement that aims to gather all of the research and modalities in one place so that people can easily research different approaches to alternative mental health.
I am hoping this can be a place where people can share their healing stories and gain inspiration from others who have successfully utilized natural mental health techniques.
By pronouncing the start of this “Revolution,” I am hereby calling for a major overhaul of the current mental health system that is overburdened, underfunded, and entrenched with conflicts of interests with the pharmaceutical industry. I would like to see patients be given warnings about possible side effects of medication, as well as a choice to use natural healing methods if they choose. People have every right to make informed, empowered decisions about their own mental health.
In the coming months, I’ve got some superb guest bloggers lined up to share their unique healing methods with you. Please make sure to sign up to receive new blog posts via e-mail so you won’t miss anything!
If you’d like to help spread the word via social media, use the hashtags #alternativementalhealth or #altmentalhealth.
Viva la revolución!
