We All Have a Mental Disorder Now- The DSM-V.

Well, I have written about this topic several times, but I could not resist sharing this older, but very relevant article about what the new mental health bible really means for us, and for the mental health professional. Here is an overview of how the “system” works. If you are thinking that it doesn’t apply to you, hold on because it probably does now!

Social Worker- Mental Health, Addictions, and Behavioral health- Leadership Educator-, Juvenile Justice. A variety of coaching. I have a great desire to help others make it through times that I myself have had to navigate. I understand the process, the pain,and the support needed. I, and the rest of my team all have both the formal education to coach others but more importantly we also have the life experience which allows us to relate to all the phases and hurdles that come with recovering from issues like depression, addiction, domestic violence, spiritual confusion, and much more. I feel that the combination of formal training and life experience allows us to meet those we help every point of need- in a real way.
