People with Mental Disorders Risk an Early Death

 These research findings imply a significant connection between “mental health” and physiological health and longevity. 

      Publishing this study in a leading psychiatric journal implicitly supports the misconception that “mental health problems” are medical “illnesses” rather than indicators of major family dysfunction.

      This article doesn’t

(1) define “mental health,”

(2) what promotes “
mental health problems,” or

(3) offer practical suggestions about how to reduce or prevent such problems. This leaves readers to form their own conclusions about these complex topics. Typical lay readers lack enough knowledge about “mental health” to do so accurately.

       Professional family-systems research since 1979 suggests that “mental or psychiatric” problems are symptoms of inherited psychological wounds. The wounds form in early childhood because of caregivers’  abandonment, neglect, and abuse (trauma)

      If this is true, then the findings of this research offer powerful incentives to parents and grandparent to

(1) learn about the toxic [wounds + unawareness] cycleand to then

(2) evaluate whether they’re at risk of unintentionally wounding the young people in their lives and shortening their life-span.

The study was published online (Feb. 11, 2015) in the journal JAMA Psychiatry.
