066: STIGMA BREAKERS: Understanding Mental Illness
One in five people have a diagnosable mental health disorder. Someone you love has a mental illness. Today we’re going to discuss common mental health disorders, how they look in everyday life, what causes them, and how men can respond to their own potential illnesses and support others so they can be successful in their treatment.
We interview Matt Marx, LCSW, who is working as a mental health clinician in the Las Vegas area. We describe four common mental health disorders including PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, Major Depression and various forms of anxiety. We teach men how they might recognize the need for further evaluation when the emotions or behaviors the see in themselves or their loved ones are cause for alarm. We discuss medical assessments, how to communicate with a prescriber who may evaluate you for medication, how to deal with loved ones who struggle, and other super helpful tips.
