Hello, my name is Adam Lowery
In short, I am an x-Mental Health Counselor (by choice), the Author and Host of The Cognitive Rampage. Brewed in an abusive childhood, injured college football player turned nightclub owner, drug dealer and user. One day, I gave away all I owned and went on a two year “walkabout”. Came back, got a few degrees in psychology, became an Clinical Counselor, started revealing the mental health system problems. Wrote a book with a scientific solution to the broken system, founded the integrative psychological theory Transrational Structural Behavior Theory (TSBT) and the diagnosis Athletes Depression. I am a father, son, brother, friend, teacher and protector. Humbly questioning self, others and the world for self competence and cerebral growth, learning from others’ experiences, perceptions and philosophies for optimization.

What is Transrational Structural Behavior Theory?
This book is the application of Transrational Structure Behavior Theory (TSBT). Adam founded this integrative approach after experiencing the disconnect between the fields of mental health, science and naturopathy. “Trans-” is a prefix from the Latin “to transcend” “change thoroughly. “Transrational” is to transition to a rational thinking process. This requires more than simple cognitive reframing, but deep belief extraction and examination. You will learn to process your beliefs through rational filters and apply this to modify your feelings and behavior in a personalized structure for quicker impact and life long sustainment. TSBT combines a behavioral approach with the cognitive sciences while also recognizing social, environmental and biological influences. TSBT provides strategies and tools cultivated from all the sciences.
YOU WILL LEARN: 4 Principles Of Change
TO APPLY: 3 Tools of Change
TO ACHIEVE: The Change You Want

"The Killing Fields, Athletes Depression" by Adam Lowery
My new book “The Killing Fields, Athletes Depression” releases next year!
What is Athletes Depression?
I experienced Athletes Depression for nearly a decade. After all, I am the theoretical mind behind the revelation of Athletes Depression. I believe this should be an actual diagnosis within the Diagnostic Statistic Manual of mental health disorders (the DSM). AD hosts a different etiology as compared to its main misdiagnoses (and most currently related) Bipolar, ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder and even Identity Dissociative Disorder. These are the most popular misdiagnoses related to Athletes Depression.
In short, being raised as a high performance athlete from childhood, and playing only as far as high school or college, especially professional, creates a 50-75% increase in the probability the athlete will experience severe symptomatic mental health issues. The manifestation of Athletes Depression contains a similar and unfortunate common etiology that leads to the popular misdiagnoses. Childhood athlete to adult athlete creates the individual to determine personal value by performance. A form of direct programming meant to develop a resistive consciousness and one who is less likely to ask for help. This naturally creates a cognitive dissonance toward any possibility of “perceived weakness”. In this sense I am categorizing the existing social stigma surrounding mental health. Meaning most athletes do not seek mental health help and choose to fight it on their own. Combined with the lengthy exposure to hyper vigilant environments and situations being linked to highly rewarding states, this begins to condition the body and mind to need, continue seek, and in many cases, cause the individual to consciously or unconsciously create hyper-vigilant environments and situations to return the body and mind to these rewarding states. Many times this manifests in very high risk situations, people and behavior. The bigger risk the better. A cycle begins to emerge. The hardworking, non fearing, non “weak” athlete fights for varying lengths and “wins”. It may even appear as if they are overworking, working perpetually or appear manic. Eventually the individual will “lose” for various reasons (lengthy explanation), generally based in emotional choices and reactions. This sets in a “we lost” mindset that can last weeks, months or even years. Due to value of self being taught to be measured in performance (behaviorally, cognitively and socially), depression and severe self judgement begins and can last lengthy periods of time. The vigilance to which the individual fights the depression many times begins with the first misdiagnosis of ADHD. This overtime combines with severe depressive episodes, and other symptomatic issues begin to emerge; addiction, violence and intense anger. Feelings and thoughts as far as self harm repeat. At first, second or even third assessment, overtime the criterium appears as if the Bipolar diagnosis is present. In reality the athlete is, has been and will continue to cycle this way due to “Athletes Depression”, NOT bipolar disorder and or ADHD. The manifestation and etiology of Athletes Depression has gone undetected and has indirectly caused countless misdiagnosis to spin athletes, and especially x athletes lives seemingly out of control. Leaving the individual with thoughts and feelings their mental health struggles are different than any therapist, and especially any partner, family member or boss can understand. The Athletes are left on the killing fields alone and depressed. Lost.
