We need a smorgasbord of mental health options

This quote from Jung contains the gist of everything that matters in what I hope to convey in my work. There are as many paths as there are human beings and one persons medicine is another persons toxin…it makes for one hell of a party here on earth.

The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases. – Carl Jung

choiceAlso it is the idea behind all my advocacy around mental health…we need a smorgasbord of options available to folks. I used that line (smorgasbord of options) in this radio interview I did recently…it was the first time I’d used it…it just popped out spontaneously while I was talking…but I’ll be using it more. It’s exactly what we need and it’s how a sane infrastructure must look like if it’s going to support meaningful healing options for real people in the world.

Not only do different people need different things to heal…the same people need different things at different times. Healing is about evolving and recognizing change as much as anything else.
