I have come to realise that so many within the mental health field are determined they will cure and fix everyone. That is the agenda and it is very tunnel visioned.
They demand everyone can heal and recover in full, based upon their agenda’s and their preconceived idea’s that everyone is the same in the way trauma affects people.
Of course, the majority are going to believe this, as it’s their business, their job and their ego’s can be hurt when their clients don’t recover.… But, it’s not about the therapist, it is about the client.
Many therapists and mental health professionals, need to take their agenda’s, and tunnel visioned attitudes off the table, and instead develop empathy and an understanding that everyone is different. And that ‘is’ okay.
Mental health, is an industry and ‘fixing’ people is the agenda.
I don’t buy into this, because I see the issues within this and how it harms many. It shames many and that is not okay.
And I am not in any way stating everyone within the MH profession is like this, there are many amazing therapists out there. But I do see posts and articles that show so many have these views of fixing and curing everyone.
Empathy, non judgment, lack of agenda, focussing on people being different, stop comparing, and stop treating everyone as the same in terms of the severity of their trauma, the severity of their mental health and the assumption everyone can be ‘fixed’.
This received great feedback on my page, including from mental health professionals.
