Mental Health – The Inner Child

Stress DisordersTo understand the many emotional breakdowns in our society we must understand how a person with a mental health has not separated from his or her inner childhood person.

Simply because we do not always see the problem, which lies beneath the mental and physical disabilities, many mental illnesses and other problems in society are complicated.

Inner child Within Ourselves

Throughout our lifetime, the inner child within us will exist and we will suffer the emotional breakdowns, if we do not recognize this ‘inner child’. As a result, most professionals struggle to find a way to treat patients with mental disabilities, yet often fail to see that the problem is buried deep within the individual’s mind structure.

The child that was ignored, emotionally neglected, possibly abused physically, or witnessed many bad disturbances, is buried beneath a shattering mind disorder and until the main problem is dealt with, the problem will continue to grow.

Basic Knowledge of the Problems

One has to have a basic knowledge of his or her problems in order to contact the inner self. Once a basic knowledge is situated, the person can move to the next step. Having a basic understanding of you, disorder can bring forth rewards by helping the patient to accept his or her handicap.

Emotional interruptions

Emotional interruptions often stem from a lifelong childhood that has been ignored. It is often easier to help the person move forward in recovery, when the person comes to his or her agreement with that child of the past.

After seeing, what caused the mental illness the person can find a way to deal with his or her symptoms better. Some diagnoses however a stemmed from chemical and physical imbalances, brain injuries and so onwards. Until someone deals with the biological aspect of the problem, with the underlying problem in existence, efficient treatment is not possible.


For example, Schizophrenia was recently found to be a disease of the mind because the Twin Holes have a larger side to the cavity of the brain organ. Genetics is the other key factors into the understanding of schizophrenia.

Many patients that suffer with schizophrenia also had a disruptive childhood and often will deny any such happenings whether it is proved or not. In such case the key factor on the therapeutic level is to get the patient to get in touch with his childhood and attempt to remove rejection. It is more complicated to treat him or her as long as a patient is in rejection.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Another example can be seen with patients that are diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder. Often these patients were subjected to hurt as a child and the disorder worsen during a hurtful experience.

The solution then is to addressing the child buried beneath the disorder and moving forward to the traumatic trigger that put the disorder in severe state of mind. Once you dig deep into the childhood and help the patient to become familiar with the child within then it is possible to treat the patient more efficiently.

Coping Mental Illness

The sufferer himself has the best knowledge about his condition. The best answer for this mental illness solution is to following a set of steps, starting with listening and hearing what the patient is telling you. If the patient doe not understand his or her problem then you have to reach down deep inside the patient’s child and ask this person questions.

You can learn more about the patient after you reach the child within then. This can help you find a strategy that might work best for the patient. Remember all people are different and each person should have his or her own set of strategies.
