Mental Health Courses
We know that every person goes through ups and downs. It’s a natural part of life. We do not believe that feeling down or disturbed is always a function of a chemical or genetic imbalance. Unfortunately, psychiatric medications are often over-relied upon these days, and it can be difficult to get an overview of what other options there are for feeling better. Thomas Insel, MD, a psychiatrist and the past director of the National Institutes of Mental Health, recently said that we still don’t know the real cause of mental disturbances. So, if conventional science doesn’t know the causes, how can we know the appropriate treatment to address the causes? IMHU’s mental health courses aim to provide you with a deeper understanding of the causes of mental disturbance and the appropriate treatment to address the true causes. We continue to search high and low for the best providers and teachers who can describe the full range of effective options for you. This puts you in the know without having to do the time-consuming review by yourself.
“I spent 13 years at NIMH really pushing on the neuroscience and geneticsof mental disorders, and when I look back on that I realize that while I think I succeeded at getting lots of really cool papers published by cool scientists at fairly large costs—I think $20 billion—I don’t think we moved the needle in reducing suicide, reducing hospitalizations, improving recovery for the tens of millions of people who have mental illness.”–Thomas Insel, 2017
