This thesis examines and researches a preventative approach toward the present mental healthcare practice. The current mental healthcare system focuses on a curative instead of a preventative approach. This current treatment type of mental healthcare often increases the longevity of the mental illness with the overuse of prescription drugs. After taking into account our culture’s needs and issues it is found that we are often overworked and overstressed, which decreases our general well-being. After researching and learning more about the psychological aspects, I would like to offer a solution that is a “de stressor,” and in the end becomes a public retreat center.
