Dr. Mullen discusses the myths and misinformation about mental health supported by the pathographic focus of the disease model of mental healthcare, which is responsible for negative public opinion, media misrepresentation, misdiagnoses, stigma, and overall pessimism of the industry as a whole. The video illustrates the benefits of transitioning to the wellness model, which emphasizes the character strengths and virtues that generate the motivation, persistence, and perseverance to endure and recover.
Why is your support essential? ReChanneling is dedicated to research and development of methods to alleviate symptoms of psychological dysfunction and discomfort. Our vision is to reshape the current pathographic emphasis on diagnoses over individual, which fosters a deficit, disease model of human behavior. Treatment programs must disavow ineffective, one-size-fits-all approaches and target the individual personality through communication, empathy, collaboration, and an integration of historically and clinically practical methods. All donations support scholarships for workshops and practicums.
