    "It is my feeling that "Strive For Happiness" would be very helpful to individuals who are caring for loved ones to remind them that they are not alone, for individuals entering the mental health field to enable them to see the individual as a person, and to the public to help them better understand mental illness and to eliminate the stigma that attaches to mental illness.

  5. I just saw a video in which a bunch of Psychiatrists & Psychologists from the APA all suffered from "Oppositional Defiant Disorder", for they all denied the existence of mental "illness"

    All you need is a immaterial microscope to observe the immaterial culprit that causes illness within the immaterial mind

    There definitely exist corrupt minds but the problem is approaching it from a medical viewpoint

    "we are spirits in the material world"
