    Behaviour is not the problem, behaviour is an expression of the problem. Love this one

    This is the best TED talk I have ever heard. Every word is clear, no wasted time, no waffling - and so inspiring.

    “Treatments need to be tailored to each individual brain, not clusters of symptoms.” Very well said! And i am so touched after listening to Andrew’s story. I really hope more psychiatrists would use brain scan for patient analysis and heal more brains. Thank you so much!

    I also work in radiology and I agree that we need to promote more diagnostic imaging in terms of psychology and mental health. I’m an administrator and I’m hoping to push the rehabilitation hospital that I work at onto this path. We treat all types of brain injuries, stroke aliments, neurological issues.

    This is really fascinating for me, I had a tumour removed from my frontal left lobe in 1991, not only did I have to relearn lots of things I also started swearing something I had never done. For years this was always a struggle to not swear. Last year I fell off a ladder and hit the back of my head requiring five stitches. Within five minutes of speaking to my husband to go to the hospital I realized that I no longer swore, and still don't. Whatever that fall did, it changed damage from the tumour removal.

    "Behavior is the expression of the problem, not the problem". Daniel Amen.

    I like how he says "I and my colleagues" instead of "I", "me" , "only me" and so on. He has a team spirit attitude for sure.

    He hit the nail on the head, he’s going against the common grain so no one will prob listen and I hate that for him, he’s a kind savior god bless Dr Amen

    Would really have liked to hear some on how they rehabilitate the brain.

    This is such an important talk. I worked in mental health most of my nursing career. I love the idea of getting to the root of the problem and having evidence of pathology as it may help "legitimize" mental illness as there is still so much skepticism and stigma. And actually being able to change someone's brain-- that's huge!!

    Whom so ever watching this video, I wish you health, wealth and lot of happiness to you from the bottom of my heart.

    Who else is now curious to have a brain scan to see how their brain health and activity holds up?

  • Layla Ifzaren

    Amazing! Could Daniel Amen explain in a second TED talk what sort of treatments are used to reverse the brain damage?

    Soo amazing of information, and he showed respect and compassion for the people who suffer from mental illness.

    This guy is my doctor- though I’ve never met him, simply reading one of his books was life changing.

  • Jayde Van Den Berg

    This is beautiful. I'm currently studying to become a therapist myself, and I don't know why we aren't performing this every time a client comes in. All of this is factual, and all of this is proven. Why are we throwing darts? We could innovate mental health help and create a more stable society. I wish more people in the world viewed this as a necessity; not as a privilege.

    “You are not stuck with the brain you have, you can make it better.” That hit me so hard

  • Saranya V.O

    “When you have the privilege of changing someone’s brain, you are not only changing his or her life, but you have the opportunity to change generations to come” - Amazing and Inspiring!! 🙌😮 👏
