Dr. Mehl-Madrona shows what mental health care could be. He explains that within a narrative psychiatry model of mental illness, people are not defective, requiring drugs to "fix" them. What needs "fixing" is the ineffective stories they have internalised and succumbed to about how they should live in the world.
Drawing on traditional stories from cultures around the world, Dr. Mehl-Madrona helps his patients rewrite their lives. He shows how this innovative approach is actually more compatible with what we are learning about the biology of the brain and genetics than the conventional model of psychiatry.
