Very little is more important for your overall well-being than your mental health. Yet, mental health and the issues that can arise from it are still not always taken as seriously as they should in today's society. People everywhere are dealing with issues, and simply telling someone to “get over it” is not how it works. Today, my guest is Dr. Sheila Addison, a therapist who specializes not just in family matters, but in counseling LGBTQ patients as well. With 21 years of experience behind her, we talk to her about mental health in America today, as well as the misconceptions that society has about communities that struggle every day with their well-being.
