according to dr. szasz, the medical model of mental illness

I don’t know if you’ve heard of this, but the so-called medical model of mental illness is actually far from scientific. As a matter of fact, it’s a collection of mostly-made-up ideas and assumptions that were passed down through the mental health system over the years.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that mental illness is a concept that has been around for a long time and is not based on the actual science that is done in the field. And that makes sense because it’s so old, it’s kind of like the “M” word – the “M” word is a word that refers to the “m” of “magician”.

I say this as someone who has a very strong mental illness. But the way I hear it, mental illness is defined as a collection of things that are not part of the mental health system that is very, very different from the mental health system that we have today. So the notion that mental illness is a “condition” is actually very new and should not be used as the basis for any treatment or diagnosis. Mental illness is a very different thing than a mental health disorder.

The fact is that mental illness is actually a misnomer, because it is not the presence of symptoms that we call mental illness. It is the absence of symptoms. The symptoms of mental illness are those things that are associated with the condition, but they are not part of the condition. The word “illness” is actually an abuse of the term “disease.” It is a misnomer to call mental illness something other than a symptom.

This is why, when I am trying to come up with an accurate definition of mental illness, I have to remember that the symptoms of mental illness are those things that are associated with the condition, but they are not part of the condition. So in that sense, it is more accurate to call it a disease.

In the medical model, illness is what happens when there is a disconnect between a person’s brain chemistry and their body chemistry. When a person is suffering from a mental illness, it is the connection between the two that is broken.

There are at least two major types of mental illness: major and minor. Major illnesses are associated with a serious impairment that can cause physical (and sometimes, mental) disability, such as brain damage, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. A major illness is something like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. And a major illness is not the same thing as a mental illness per se.

But the difference between a mental illness and a medical illness is the connection between the two. A person with a normal brain chemistry is not going to get crazy. A person with a normal brain chemistry may get crazy, but it will not cause them to have a medical illness.

For example, as a child if you have a brain chemistry that is similar to that of a person with an Alzheimers, then you’ll probably have a normal brain chemistry at the end of your life. But it’s also probable that the two people’s brains will be different. And this is the difference between being mentally ill and being mentally disabled.

People with a medical illness don’t actually have a medical illness. They just have abnormal mental health, and the medical model of mental illness does not exist in the medical science. In the medical model, mental illness is like a disease that is not a medical illness. A person with a medical illness will have a medical illness, but the medical illness will not have a medical model.
