OK, I think it depends. I'm stuck on Abilify. I don't think I have a "brain disease" so much as lots of crazy stuff happened (much of it, oddly enough, related to shrinks), and now I need a hardcore anti-agitation medication.
From what I understand, people with Schizophrenia and other severe mental illnesses tend to have troubled pasts. Some way of dealing with that might eliminate or reduce the need for meds, or reduce the amount of time people spend as "mental patients." Then again...my experience has been that once you're "in the system," the powers that be aren't all that eager to let you go.
