I've said this before, but I don't think I've said it here. I don't know why I thought of it tonight, but I did so here goes. Behavioral Health What is up with that terminology? That implies that someone with a mental illness has a choice over their 'behavior'. I really hate that term. It describes symptoms, not disorders or illnesses. We can get into the semantics over the word 'choice' as used above, but someone that is mentally ill and is not stable has only limited control over their 'behavior'. Ok. Off my soapbox. I hated that term when I was in the psychiatric hospital....in the Behavioral Health Unit. Like I was just choosing to be bad or something instead of being severely depressed with psychotic features. Ugh. And I know some of you don't like the term mentally ill. I'm not interested in creating a debate or argument or any flame-throwing, but am curious as why you take offense to that term. Enlighten me, if you will. I might be missing something.
