Changing the Name of Mental Illness

Thanks to my friend Mary Palafox, I came across a new website this weekend to pass along to you.  Their mission is to formally change the name of mental illness to better represent what is going on in the brain, suggesting "Neurosynaptic Dysfunction", NSD, as that term represents the communication dysfunction between neurotransmitters and the synapses.  

It's a brain thing, not a behavior thing!
