Top 5 Critical Steps to Fixing the Mental Health System

Step 1: Define Normal

Most people are astounded to learn there is not a clear definition for normal in the industry of Emotional Wellness (mental health). Without this definition, what is the objective? The answer is there isn’t one. This leaves one subject to a recommended lifetime of medication and therapy. Burris Institute has defined normal by defining behavioral epidemiology (behavior cause and control). This definition is used to establish baseline measurements for the client.

Efficacy of Empirical Data in Emotional Wellness (Mental Health)

Efficacy of empirical data in Emotional Wellness (mental health) occurs when constants are measured and changed and legitimacy of the data occurs when it is generated by the client. The constant in Emotional Wellness (mental health) is the clients’ emotional state. Measuring, tacking and improving this constant at every session is what brings about the efficacy of an intervention.

An Empirically Sound Process with Measurable Outcomes for Depression, PTSD, Addiction and Co-Occurring Disorders at Every Session

Empirically sound and measurable outcomes in Emotional Health (mental health) are terms rarely used together because there are no standards of measurement as there are in Burris Emotional Wellness. We established a measurable outcome protocol in 1990 and have refined it down to a 22 point three instrument checklist.

Taking Control of Your Emotional Wellness (mental health) without Meds, Labels or Personal History

Ask anyone to define normal and they will reference behavior. Normal cannot be determined via behavior but it can be determined via emotion, which is the driver for behavior. When making an observational subjective assessment as is done with children and ADHD one is bypassing the driver of the behavior or the root cause. The term observational subjective assessment in translation simple means one is guessing because there is a void of any meaningful data.
