Join psychotherapist Dr. Bridget Nash, creator of TherapyShow.com, as she interviews the top experts in the field of mental health in order to demystify psychotherapy and treatment. Mental health issues seem scary for a number of reasons. First of all, they are mysterious. Until recently, there has been no way to “see” mental illness like we can “see” a broken ankle on an X-ray machine. Instead we have been mainly relying on clinical observation and self-reporting of symptoms in order to treat mental illness. Mental illness is tricky because it is the only part of the body that has to participate in its own treatment. If you break your ankle, the doctor X-rays your leg and puts a cast on your ankle -- Simple. The doctor doesn’t ask your ankle a bunch of questions in order to make its diagnosis. The doctor doesn’t give your ankle a multitude of treatment options and ask your ankle to select a treatment for itself. Mental illness is the only illness that relies on the part of the body that isn’t working optimally to help find a solution. When a PERSON is experiencing a mental health crisis, they can feel alone, confused and frightened by the mental health system. But when someone in your FAMILY has a mental health crisis, you can feel alone, confused, frightened AND powerless. The decisions made for oneself or a family member during this time, can mean the difference between relapse and recovery. When you enter the mental health system, you may hear many new terms. This only adds confusion to an already difficult experience. My main goal is to shed light on all of this and give you the tools to navigate the mental health system. I look forward to taking this journey with you.
