The leadership role in mental health has been assumed by psychiatrists who diagnose mental illnesses that do not exist and treat them with potentially harmful brain drugs. Dr. Glasser will explain that mental health separate from mental illness does exist if we could change from the mental illness model to a new public health model based on mental health. This will allow psychotherapists to assume a leadership role they don't have now.


Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe a public health approach to deliver mental health directly to clients.
  2. To describe how the public health model would differ from the medical model.
