[Note this was a blog in response to a question about "bipolar disorder" on PersonalityZone]
The “other” important part of my father's work that is still vastly hidden, is in the area of "mental health." Of course, a problem is, first, one must say that my father would not use the word "mental" -- he finds that word useless, but more to the point he finds the use of the word “mental” as "counterproductive." The term "bipolar" is also a word that he finds as a dangerous label that psychiatry has recently created and used to make drug dependents of millions of people (including a significant number of kids, because they are the most vulnerable and easiest to drug in the long term). The overwhelming majority of psychiatrists make a living (often very lucrative) by prescribing pills. The fact that psychiatry is a more harmful practice on the whole, than helpful, is not recognized widely.
The issue of dealing the “problems” that are indicated by being branded “bipolar” either by medics or self-diagnosed (see Mistakes Were Made, but not by me), does not go away, despite the fact that the “bipolar disorder” does not exist. Having problems in life can persist and both putting labels or rejecting labels as the “problem” can contribute or ameliorate the problem. The key is, since the whole of psychiatry and partially psychology are in the dark ages, to recognize the important works that can give one tools and methods to cope or fix the problems that each individual encounters.
Since this “problem” is complicated and not easily explained by a few blogs entries, I will be creating blogs entries on this topic, and hopefully my dialog (or monolog) might help those interested. I will try to reveal some of my father’s work based on in the last sixty years. When in the future I am able to release or help publish his book Dark Escape, people can see and gain better understanding of this very important area.
