How do we improve the mental health? What can government do? What can the caring social institutions do? Can a person help themselves? How do we reduce the incidence of depression, anxiety, suicide, and family violence? How do we understand the aetiology of our psychic states and how do we use that to help people? Is it even legitimate to ask the question can better science make a difference to our mental health?
This paper explores proof of the spiritual model of humanity and what it will mean to adopt it as the foundation of people’s understanding of themselves and adopt it as the scientific foundation of all appropriate social policy.
Keywords: mental health, scientific verisimilitude, social ideology, spiritual model of people, correct science of people
