Mental health diagnosis: Axioms, continuum, and future directions

Guttman, Maxwell

The present work is intended to create a space of support and safety for people with a mental health
diagnosis. However, readers should never coordinate a response to an immediate clinical emergency
unless they have state-licensed credentials issued by a local office of professions. Anyone requiring
immediate medical attention should call 911 or proceed to a local emergency room. The central aim is to
develop a community of individuals willing to establish a new culture surrounding the delivery of
mental health services and the manner in which treatment, advocacy, and community psychoeducation
is rendered by systems of care and prepared for consumption in our communities. Twenty-first century
treatment for people with a mental health diagnosis is advancing, largely driven by new trends in
research and policy reform. These policies, for better or worse, prescribe and map a course for new
treatment pathways and models for delivering best practices in mental healthcare. To build on earlier
research requires that clinicians successfully challenge less effective treatment milieus, evidence a need
for further data, and ultimately, carry out studies that demonstrate and provide better outcomes for
patients. Without question, rising violence can be partly attributed to a broken mental health system.
