Let’s Change The Term “Mental Health”
As a retired counselor of 30 years I also manage my own severe treatment-resistant depression and anxiety. The term “mental health” consists of two words that each have a very negative connotation. Let’s consider using the term “brain health” instead, just like “heart health” and “bone health”. After all, the brain is just another organ of the body that needs to be medically treated for those of us dealing with brain health issues. There is already enough stigma.
