Psychotherapy Works

Elyn is a law scholar and writer who has schizophrenia. I saw her speak about 4 years ago in Orange County. She is inspirational. She defies the common stigma that people with mental illness are relegated to take meds and just trying to stay out of the hospital. What struck me most about her talk is what she found to be helpful aside from medications - regular counseling - psychoanalysis to be specific. Having worked inpatient and now with families and individuals impacted by mental illness, I believe every person has a story that deserves to be heard. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
