In our first full episode, I get a chance to talk to a woman who is a Ph.D. student in counseling and experiences depression. Throughout her life, doctors have diagnosed her with a number of different illnesses, but as she has gotten older, they have begun to recognize that depression is the correct diagnosis.
She talks to us about how her mental illness can impact her studies, her work as a therapist in the campus counseling center, and her ability to teach her classes. In addition, she talks about the stigma surrounding a therapist with a mental illness. Take a listen to learn more about her story.
