六年前，一个接近我心脏的人被诊断出患有双相情感障碍。她的病和后来的治疗对我们的关系产生了很大的影响，在这段时间我开始阅读心理学和精神疾病。我发现人文心理学很有趣，卡尔罗杰斯和Abraham Maslow的理论对我产生了很大的影响。人本主义心理学强调一个人的善良。卡尔罗杰斯和Abraham Maslow关注的是人性的积极方面。Abraham Maslow和人本主义理论卡尔罗杰斯的动机理论强调了增长和实现潜力的必要性。一个人最需要的是自我实现的需求，在这种需求中，他们充分发挥自己的潜力和能力。我觉得有同情心，给一个人无条件的积极的评价可以帮助他们成长和繁荣。我强烈相信这种现象学的方法，它是人的主观体验，以及它是如何影响人的。在张等人(2017)进行的一项元分析研究中，中国大陆双相情感障碍的估计点、12个月和终生流行率分别为0.09%、0.17%和0.11%。这种情况在中国各地都很普遍。正确的治疗干预和医疗将帮助那些患有精神疾病的人。这些治疗和措施可以帮助人们减少症状，恢复和健康的生活。
Six years ago, a person close to my heart was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Her illness and subsequent treatment have a great influence on our relationship, and it was during this time when I begun reading about psychology and mental illnesses. I found humanistic psychology interesting and theories by Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow had a great impact on me. Humanistic psychology emphasizes on goodness of a person. Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow focused on the positive aspect of human nature. The motivation theory by Abraham Maslow and humanistic theory Carl Rogers by emphasized on the need to grow and fulfil one’s potential. A person highest need is the need for self-actualisation wherein they realise their full potential and ability. I feel that being empathetic and giving a person unconditional positive regard can help them grow and flourish. I strongly believe in the phenomenological approach that is subjective experiences of the person and how it influences the person. In a meta analytical study conducted by Zhang et al. (2017), the estimated point, 12-month and lifetime prevalence of Bipolar Disorder in mainland China were 0.09%, 0.17% and 0.11%, respectively. It has become common in people across China. Correct therapeutic interventions and medical treatment will help those suffering from mental illnesses. These treatment and measures can help people to reduce symptoms, recover and live a healthy life.
