Have you or a loved one with mental health challenges experienced euphoric spiritual enlightenment? What about deep spiritual bleakness? These are examples of spiritual psychosis or spiritual emergency. Last month a groundbreaking conference on this issue was held in Oakland, Calif. The event, "Psychosis as a Spiritual Crisis and Opportunity for Growth," was hosted by Alameda County Behavioral Healthcare Services and the California Mental Health and Spirituality Initiative. Mental Health and Wellness Radio host Jenee Darden interviews Dr. Michael Cornwall, a psychotherapist who has helped people in spiritual psychosis. He was one of the speakers at the conference. Dr. Cornwall blogs at www.madinamerica.com.
