IamA mental health and co-occurring disorder therapist, AMA!
Hello everyone! My name is Jamie and I am a mental health therapist who works primarily with mental health disorders and co-occurring disorders (mental health + Addiction).
I have been in the field for about 4 years now and work with ages as young as 7 years old and as old as their late 80's. I've worked with many different kinds of mental illness!
I'm always eager to help out an individual and educate to reduce the stigma associated with mental health and addiction.
Please ask me anything!!
If you or someone you know is feeling suicidal, please don't hesitate to ask questions here, but also please refer to these numbers here:
Also a disclaimer: I am happy to answer any questions but this thread alone will not resolve any long term mental health issues and I will be very happy to assist you in figuring out obtaining mental health services!
Will be answering questions until about 12am EST. If this gets pretty popular I may extend it :-)
Edit: woke up to a bunch of new comments will be responding to all throughout the day!
