Mental Health– Entirety and Simplicity

Mental Health – Entirety and Simplicity

By Sheila M Cooperman, Licensed Psychotherapist


Sure it is holiday time, and most would expect a light fluffy article.  But, unfortunately holiday time is when there are the most issues with mental health and suicide.  So, my gift for the readers in 2020 is   “awareness and knowledge” They can finally become “aware” and “knowledgeable” about how
to feel mentally better.

For past decades, and more prevalent today, Mental Health conditions aka mental health illness
has become one of the most endemic issues in this country.

Why? This is my explanation.

Most that know me, know full-well I do not conform to PC and I don’t spew clinical nonsense.  In my mind, there is an element of confusion, purposely indoctrinated on all and everyone that will allow themselves to be sucked in.

For years, I have been collecting articles regarding all the different topics and subjects that are potentially involved or affected where mental health is concerned.  This is why there are countless articles that breakdown every single emotion and mood symptom.

These are the articles that I have been collecting; 200+ articles and stories, testimonials and reports written about the following subjects.  These breakdown to  memory, adhd, add, grief, addiction, stress, anger, gun violence, anxiety, sleep, Insomnia, depression, suicide, SAD, sadness, OCD, PTSD, self-esteem, dependency on medication, rape, abuse, mood changes, obsessive behavior, violent thoughts,  Rumination, focus,

I do this to pretty much debunk the content that is contained within.  This is not done out of malice, but instead to give people the gift of simplicity.

It is more than evident to anyone alive today, that hyper-complexity has taken over our lives when it comes to most topics.  Just deciding which toilet paper to purchase is a huge brain exercise.  I am not speaking about which brand, no that is just the tip of the iceberg.  Now, brands have more than one type, and they all have different features.

My god, we have made everything so complicated, it has almost become the lay of the land. I feel that when it comes to mental health, someone has to finally simplify this topic.

I will tell you this, it surely is not Amazon.  In the mood category alone, Amazon sells over 500,000+ products.  I don’t understand how some of the big companies can be putting out hundreds of product for the same purpose – supporting the elimination of mood symptoms and restoring good mental health.

If that is the case, what are they actually saying about any one of their products?  It says, they do not care, and they know none of their products actually work.

This should be the first light-bulb moment for anyone shopping a company that is selling so many products for the same purpose.  It is also this income-gutting event that gives supplement such a bad image.

Simplicity, simplicity, seems to be the nemesis of our routine complexity cerebral syndrome.  It appears that unless things are made complicated, and difficult to understand, it has no value.

Almost every article that I have in my collection focuses on just one emotion or mood symptom.  For some companies, their continuous writing about the same topic keeps their income flowing. Seriously how much can you actually write about ADHD.  I don’t know but, a magazine like ADDitude magazine writes stories and shows resources about nothing else.

This alone is concerning to me, since I have directly dealt with clients and customers alike, who indicated they have gone through their lives experiencing what they thought was ADD.  After just a few weeks working my magic, asking the right questions and more, their problematic symptoms vanished.

I am positive ADDitude editors would not be thrilled to learn this.

Oh and regarding the list above, therapists could break down these topics even further.  For my purpose and audience I think I have gotten my point across.

I keep all these articles for my blog, or someday to write a book, about them.  After all, with 200 + articles about mental health and mood disorders, there is plenty of literary fodder to spread around.

Well, Psychology Today would like you to believe that, since they have been spreading it for decades.

But, the reality is my book would be very short.  Maybe, it would be more like an e-book.

Unlike most of the therapists that are asked for their opinions at times, my words are far superior.

I do not include myself into that same framework as the therapist or psychologist, who attended school, sat hours and hours listening to different professors, taking notes, writing papers and then finally taking exams before they could be awarded a license from their state of residence.

Some might say I am narssistic, but they would be incorrect.  I consider myself in a complete different playing field, the difference from the player and the person who watches the sports.

There is a saying “they are not in the trenches.”   When it comes to mental health, and therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists, never would be a truer statement be heard.

They were not in the “trenches” so social media has coined a bunch of acronyms, and in this case STFU
would be more than appropriate.

There is no comparison to the person who learned all their knowledge about mental health from textbooks, and those that learned it in their own personal quagmire of a trench.

There is no comparison to the therapist who studied and is conveying or counseling a client from the knowledge learned in a book, and the person who had to save their own life when they frightfully recognized that the academic lessons and the content available fell short.

So, when people want to call me Narcissistic, because of my different theory about mental health and the etiology, it just shows me besides everything else they have no idea what narcisistic actually means.

Along this path, I was privy to something that only my clients and customers are also now aware of.  All those 200+ articles are actually describing the same impetus and yet they are clueless.

Were these writers, blind, unaware, or just wasting your time? Honestly, to date, I have never seen the most important connected word of causation included in any of them.

Like the magic key to open the door, and to actually explain why people are feeling the way they do.
Why is this piece always missing from every article?

What is the repeated need to break things down to so many connected yet to the novice unconnected moving parts.  Again, is this due to ignorance, a lack of awareness and or a private agenda?  Why else do some companies exist by the constant belaboring of the same topics written and discussed in a million ways?

Then there are all the other media sources that don’t stay in their lane, but instead find the need to just fill their pages with nonsense, and antiquated, useless dribble.  For some reason, find the need to publish another subpar article, erecting more questions, and providing no solutions about one of the many 25+ different slices of mental health.

What is the real agenda for jumping onto this topic bandwagon?  What is really behind this participation – again audience and following.

I know my therapy book would be very short.

I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that all the mental health topics that I have listed above are all the result of one issue. It is not complex and although they may want to break it down to 25+ different topics, there are not 25+ different causes.

On the contrary they are all founded from one cause.  The intensity of these symptoms depends on the timeliness of the recognition and implementation of this solution. Whether your symptoms are in the initial stage, or have exacerbated to the more advanced, they still are founded from the same origin.

Again, let’s keep this simple, that even a child could understand.

Your Serotonin is too low!

All the mental health issues and symptoms present when your serotonin falls too low.  That is it.  The serotonin falls a little lower with each and every negative event in your life. If your life does not have enough positive events to raise it back up, well then you will eventually begin to experience whichever symptoms are buried in your genes.

Again, simplicity, There are not 25 + different things you must do to mentally feel better, just one.

You must raise your serotonin!

Don’t fret or be concerned about the difficulty or potential impossibility behind this task.

Your brain knows exactly how to heal itself, by raising the serotonin when it has the necessary tools.

This is where, I am in a class all by myself, and I know exactly what these tools are.

Simply, Remember, I healed myself.
