Cause of mental problems



   I believe that the cause of most mental problems lies somewhere 
   in one or more of the following:  basic assumptions, beliefs, 
   ideas, values, outlooks, attitudes.  That is, I believe that 
   for a particular mental problem there is some offending basic 
   assumption, belief, idea, value, outlook, or attitude that is 
   causing it (or perhaps some combination of them).  I believe if 
   that belief, attitude, etc. that is causing the problem for 
   some reason changes then the mental problem will disappear.  
   The problem is to identify the offending assumption, attitude,  
   etc. and induce a change.  People as they live life develop 
   attitudes, assumptions, values, etc. that they cling to and are 
   likely to carry all their lives unless, for some reason, they 
   come to question them and change them.  The basic attitudes, 
   assumptions, etc. that we carry determine how we deal with 
   life, respond to situations, handle problems, etc.  The right 
   ones produce a calm, healthy, well-balanced person.  The wrong 
   ones cause problems.
