I’ve said this quite a bit throughout my first years in clinical psych. Grad school teaches you a lot…but you must remember/remind yourself of this on your own. I appreciate someone else saying this.
Please remember what you say when you discuss mental illness, addiction, etc. In short: don’t be an insensitive asshole/tell others how to cope.
Don’t make the mental illness stigma even worse. You are better than that. Nothing is black & white when it comes to mental illness either…don’t try & make it out to be because you yourself cannot imagine wanting to die.
