Publisher's Summary

New hope for those suffering from conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, addictions, PTSD, ADHD, and more. 

Though incidence of these conditions is skyrocketing, for the past four decades standard treatment hasn’t much changed, and success rates in treating them have barely improved, either. Meanwhile, the stigma of the “mental illness” label - damaging and devastating on its own - can often prevent sufferers from getting the help they need. 

Brain specialist and best-selling author Dr. Daniel Amen is on the forefront of a new movement within medicine and related disciplines that aims to change all that. In The End of Mental Illness, Dr. Amen draws on the latest findings of neuroscience to challenge an outdated psychiatric paradigm and help listeners take control and improve the health of their own brain, minimizing or reversing conditions that may be preventing them from living a full and emotionally healthy life. 

The End of Mental Illness will help you discover:

  • Why labeling someone as having a “mental illness” is not only inaccurate but harmful
  • Why standard treatment may not have helped you or a loved one - and why diagnosing and treating you based on your symptoms alone so often misses the true cause of those symptoms and results in poor outcomes
  • At least 100 simple things you can do yourself to heal your brain and prevent or reverse the problems that are making you feel sad, mad, or bad
  • How to identify your “brain type” and what you can do to optimize your particular type
  • Where to find the kind of health provider who understands and uses the new paradigm of brain health

Good Ruler vs. Bad Ruler very distracting

I am a huge fan of Dr. Amen and his work.
I believe in his studies and all the information that he supplies. I was super excited about reading/listening this book. I find it very distracting and annoying with every comparison to the bad ruler versus the good ruler. All I want is bullet points on what we should do to create a healthier brain. Not only that the bad ruler list is put in a positive structure. Honestly it hurts my brain to listen to it. I will have you purchase a book so I can just look at the positive and highlight those ”to do” lists. It's super difficult to follow. Overall I'm sure the content is good but I can't bring myself to listen anymore. In addition, the narrator's voice is very monotone which adds to the frustration when listening.

Mental health / Mental illness.

Great tips for people with mental illness. Some of the stories are long winded and repetitive.
