Indian philosopher Krishnamurti once said, “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

The public’s understanding of mental illness today is based on a theory emphasizing chemical imbalance. But has our focus on brain chemistry removed mental illness from its social context? We know for example, poverty is a significant risk factor for poor mental health. We also know that more unequal societies experience more mental health problems. Understanding mental illness as part of a chemical process has aided tremendously in removing stigma from mental illness, but have we gone too far? By removing mental illness from its social context, by medicating chemical imbalances, are we actually medicating a profoundly sick society?

On Health Justice Radio today we speak with clinical psychologist and author Dr. Bruce Levine about a recent blog post of his entitled, “Why anti-authoritarians are diagnosed as mentally ill.”
