One in five people in the United States suffer from a Mental Illness and the prevalence of Mental Health problems and Serious Mental Illness (SMI) has been increasing every year. Although the factors that lead a person to develop Mental Illness or SMI are highly complex, experts believe that the low quality of mental health treatment and difficulty accessing treatment contribute significantly to the increasing rates of mental illness. 

For more than three decades well-funded government agencies have tried to help address the Mental Health Crisis and have mostly failed. For more than half of people with a substance use disorder, the root causes are connected to having a co-occurring recent or chronic mental health disorder including depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Every year more people overdose or end up in jail because of their Mental Health problems. 

There are many medication and therapy options available in the United States, but more and more research is showing that traditional antidepressant medications do not work, and of people and one in four people who start therapy stop going.

As a result, rates of Mental Illness have been growing and people are left with few options.

However, there are effective non-traditional ways to overcome Mental Illness. One very promising method Ibogaine. Ibogaine is a non-recreational psychedelic drug that experts believe works like a long-term antidepressant. Recent research has also shown that Ibogaine is a highly effective treatment for severe PTSD. Ibogaine can help significantly reduce suicidal thoughts, PTSD symptoms, anxiety, and brain fog and offer other long-term psychological benefits.

Because of legality issues, many are traveling outside the U.S. to countries like Mexico to get this novel treatment for Mental Health Issues.

How it affects the brain.

Serious Mental Illness (SMI) affects the same areas of the brain that addictive drugs affect— reward and mood regulation. There are a lot of brain chemicals that are impacted by SMI, such as dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine, cortisol. These are all related to feeling stress and a lack of pleasure from day to day life. 

Experiencing Mental Illness long-term and taking medication long-term can disrupt the pleasure, reward, and mood regulation systems of the brain. A healthy person produces these feel good chemicals naturally. They feel a lot of pleasure and reward from doing ordinary things like eating food, drinking water, or having sex. Most people who start using SSRI or SNRI medications to treat their Mental Illness find that it makes them feel numb to emotions at best. At worst, medications can increase the intensity of thoughts of suicide. 

The good news is that the brain does heal from Serious Mental Illness, but it can take continued care and treatment to allow the brain to fully heal. 

Remember, while Mental Illness usually also comes with unbalanced brain chemicals, the unbalanced brain chemistry is rarely the root cause! Contextual factors like experiencing discrimination, past trauma, living in poverty, and having a large number of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) like abuse and neglect are often the root causes

Unfortunately, most therapy and medications do not help much when it comes to healing the root causes of Mental Illness.
