"I’m a psychologist – and I believe we’ve been told devastating lies about mental health"

On mental illness as a symptom of a broken society.

@cassolotl 'our distress might even be a sign of health – a telling indicator of where we can collectively resist the structures that are hurting so many of us.'

@cassolotl 'If a plant were wilting we wouldn’t diagnose it with “wilting-plant-syndrome” – we would change its conditions.'

@cassolotl "I’d like to see a world where we need fewer therapists. A culture that reclaims and embraces each other’s madness. Where we take the courageous (and sometimes skin-crawling) risk of turning to each other in our understandable, messy pain."

@cassolotl yes!!! There, Italian mental health services could learn something from this...
