“How are mental illnesses different from each other?
“What’s it like for my loved one to experience their mental illness?”
“Should I take psychiatric medications? What are the different types of medications?”
“Should I do psychotherapy or medications? Both?”
“What are the different types of psychotherapy?”
“How does addiction occur?”
“What are my treatment options for addiction?”
“How does trauma affect mental health?
Enlighten Me takes a deep dive into these questions (and more!) to give you a better understanding of the what, how, why, and the how of the mental health conditions. Gain a deeper understanding of mental illnesses beyond the “signs and symptoms” and see the differences between each medication, psychotherapy, and alternative therapies to better advocate for care.
