Mental illness and Disorders represents a myth that is destructive to individuals and our democratic society as a whole. But if there are no such actual things as mental illnesses then what are they? And if we reject the notion that we, or our loved ones, friends and others in society are not mentally ill then with what do we replace this false, degrading mythical set of concepts. Tune in and participate in a discussion about a story of human adaptation and how such a story can help explain human behavior in all of its form and variations without the degrading moral labels and judgments that now represent the field of so-called mental health. In addition, learn how to change your life story, add to your understanding of human behavior, increase the range of choices to be made in life, and if necessary find and deal with mental health professionals without being damaged by them.
