Just as it's wrong (imo) to say that everything that comes under mental health is biological, so too i think it's wrong to say that everything is spiritual emergency / emergence - it's Not.

Things cross biological, psychological / emotional, sociological / environmental & spiritual / transpersonal ranges. Things are often multi-factorial.

Some people are severely mentally unwell.

As far as i know Katie Never experienced really severe psychosis, & was Never forced hospitalised / medicated. She's one of the lucky ones, as you are. i don't think it pays to romanticise or play down the severity of what some people experience.
