Biomedical Approach about mental disorders

In contrast, the biomedical perspective, shared primarily by mainstream psychiatrists and psychologists, views the cause of mental disorders as physical dysfunction, such as biochemical or anatomical defects. From this standpoint, internal symptoms are the defining aspects of mental illness. Culture may influence the content of specific symptoms (e.g., the religious content of hallucinations) and patients’ beliefs about the origins of mental illness (e.g., spiritual vs. biological causes), but the core symptoms of a specific disorder and their impact on psychological functioning are assumed to be similar across cultures.
