Mental Illness: Brain Disorders

Mental Illness – Brain Disorders instead of  Behavior Disorders
I just recently reviewed a TedxTalk from Thomas Insel, the director of the National Institute for Mental Health. The title of his talk was “Towards a New Understanding of Mental Illness”. This talk took place in January of 2013.  It is still valuable for us as we all grow our understanding of “Not only what Mental Illness Is but what it is not.  The talk is about 13 minutes long and is full of statistics and brain pictures. Things for people who like that sort of stuff.  It also has a conversation about why we need to start thinking of Mental Illness as a Brain Disorder instead of a Behavior Disorder. I encourage all of you to take the time to listen to this TedxTalk. It is linked in below.. Share this with your family and circle of friends.
