Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. . . and all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again. The same holds true for those of us with a mental illness. The psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, etc. can assist, but it is up to the individual to create conditions which will allow recovery to happen.
The neurobiological basis of mental illness is often presented in a fatalistic way. That's the brain chemistry you've got, and that's what you're stuck with; as if the individual was unable to change the chemistry inside his or her own head. Breathing changes brain chemistry. So does excercise, the food you eat, the words you speak, the thoughts you think as well as how often you smile.
While drugs are capable of making radical changes in the chemistry of the brain, it is the slow changes over time which will help most in recovery.
"Thorough and informative without being technical. . . facinating. . . very enlightening. " Psychiatric Rehabilition Journal (Fall 2004 Vol. 28 No. 2)
"You have made a complex issue easier to understand. " Chief Kathryn Landreth, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.
