(NaturalNews) If you want to hear a story about how real mental health and recovery from mental illness should work, look no further than Paris Williams.

During the May 15, 2013 episode of Mental Health Exposed, Paris tells his personal story of mental illness, recovery and a new paradigm in mental health. Not many people on this earth have experienced psychosis, recovered, then gotten a doctorate in psychology and written books.

Paris is uniquely qualified to lead us into a new way to conceptualizing mental illness and recovering without the stigma, drugs, abusive "therapy" and lack of hope that so many experience as a direct result of modern mental health practices.

Download the May 15, 2013 episode of Mental Health Exposed and begin to understand the possibilities for true healing.

Myths of modern mental health

As a prelude to his research outlined in his book, Rethinking Madness, Paris reviews with me the common myths associated with mental illness.

Here they are:

Myth #1: Schizophrenia is a brain Disease
Myth #2: "Schizophrenia" is a valid construct
Myth #3: People cannot fully recover from schizophrenia
Myth #4: Mainstream psychiatric treatment greatly increases beneficial outcomes

Paris is living proof that the above are indeed myths. Don't miss this episode of Mental Health Exposed.

A call to mental health practitioners

It is indeed time for a new paradigm in mental health: one in which we, above all, stop overreacting to the idiosyncrasies or even crises of the mind and begin to simply search for healing opportunities. In my opinion, every "disorder" of the mind is a healing opportunity that needs to be explored, not "fixed."

We don't need to be fixed because we were never broken to begin with. Most of us have been hurt, betrayed, traumatized or deprived of what we need, but NONE of this has broken us. We need to be patient and curious - as hard as that may seem - so that we can learn the deeper mysteries of the mind and bring about healing.

The existing mental health system simply does not allow for this possibility. Labeling people with disorders and drugging them does not allow for healing or even a valid exploration of problems. This is why interviews with great thinkers and healers like Paris Williams are so important. We all need what they have to offer. So, the May 15, 2013 episode - listen!
