Is the conventional medicine model doing more harm than good by labeling, diagnosing and medicating varied normal coping mechanisms for mental health conditions? Have we overlooked the various ways the human mind copes with stress? Is the relentless search of a diagnosis or treatment for a mental health condition really worth the effort? Are humans giving away their power to heal their very intelligent bodies for a label that puts them in a box and closes off healing potential? Jason Shiers is a certified psychotherapist and certified transformative coach that has gone through the full journey from childhood trauma, to addictions and mental health problems, to jails and psychiatric care, to 12 step recovery and becoming a professional helping others. His story is painful and eye opening, yet an all to common one that highlights the misunderstandings of the normal human response to tragic life circumstances.
