Thanks for bringing this important topic into the right light. America’s approach to mental health is awful. If we as a society agree the mind and body are one, we should be treating it as such and get the basics right first to see if things like hormones, exercise, outdoor light, sleep, diet, allergies other physical ailments could be causing some mental disturbances. Unfortunately we medicate first with a diagnosis without being considering anything else. Mental health is a topic close to my heart and my interaction with our mental health system leaves a lot to be desired. Doctors need to be reschooled as does our approach to healthcare.
