  • i think this is a very appropriate point. I had some misgivings about posting this 10 tips piece for exactly these reasons, but i felt that the good points perhaps outweighed its use of “diagnostic language.” I intend to be more careful in the future. i agree that all pseudo-medical mental disorder diagnosis language ought to be avoided. Thanks for the reminder!

  • Hi, Gary, I’ve proposed a “mental health helper of the future” I call a human experience specialist in my latest book Rethinking Mental Health: Deconstructing the Mental Disorder Paradigm. I outline how this person ought to be trained and what difficulties she would face in the real world. I agree that a new helper is needed!
