I know about the association of "altered state of consciousness" with LSD and psychedelics. I just felt that the term was generic enough to be an accurate descriptor for depression and other mental illness. Being intoxicated when using alcohol or marijuana produces altered states of consciousness. The medical descriptor "altered mental status", or "altered" for short, is a medical term to describe changes in mental status.

I intend to use the term extensively on behalf of all of us. I think it might be a good stigma-killer. Not only that, but it should also foster empathy in addition to understanding.

I have had success in using the term to convey to unaffected individuals the phenomenology of depressive disorders.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
