There are two kinds of people who may be considered to be mentally ill: those who suffer from chronic and irreversible mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, and those who suffer from a mental illness that can be reversed such as depression, obsessive compulsive disorder or anxiety. It has already been widely accepted that any person who suffers from any mental illness, reversible or not, will greatly benefit from psychological treatment regardless or not this person is taking any psychotropic medication.
It is very important to understand that some forms of mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorders will require lifetime prescribed psychotropic medications and psychological counseling to ease the symptoms of these mental conditions, with in many cases amazing results even though a cure does not exist. However, many other most common forms of mental illnesses may get treated and cured with psychological counseling alone, saving the patient from all the damaging side effects that psychotropic medications cause.
Here at www.goodpsychologists.com we want to help any person who may suffer from any form of mental illness achieve normal levels as soon as possible to avoid the overuse of damaging psychotropic medications; and in as many cases as it can be possible, treat the patient without the use of any psychotropic medication at all. This is our mission and we will restlessly work to do so.
We also provide professional psychological counseling to people (such as couples, drug users, people who need advise, etc…) who although they might be consider to be mentally healthy, they need an extra outside hand to recover their happiness and/or to avoid certain problems.
