How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
After giving birth to my first son, I suffered severe postpartum depression. My healing journey involved a holistic, well-rounded approach of walking, consulting with a nutritionist, and receiving culturally competent psychiatric care based on clinical guidelines. The therapeutic care I received would later propel me to becoming a psychiatric nurse.
My experience as both an individual who receives mental health care and one who gives mental health care uniquely positions me to understand the struggles that you?re facing. Since becoming a psychiatric care provider herself, I have witnessed that mental health stigma is, unfortunately, alive and well, even among professionals themselves receiving care.
But at PsychLife, we firmly believe that just because you?re a mental health professional doesn?t mean you don?t need or deserve quality mental health care. This stigma among the mental health profession inspired me to create a place for care professionals to receive the customized, holistic care they deserve.
