Therapy Advice: Should You Quit Counseling?

Have you ever considered quitting therapy or counseling? Are you thinking about it now? I've quit many times - and the thought has crossed my mind more than once lately. Here are my thoughts on what the process of being in and out of therapy has looked like for me, and what I might recommend if you are struggling at the moment.

Motivation for Depression - Why You SHOULDN'T Give Up

I hope you welcome my tears in this depression motivation video.
The words we choose are extremely important to how we see ourselves and the world especially if we suffer from depression. If we become aware of our vocabulary, this can be the difference between motivation to get out of bed or try something new, or not trying anything at all. Sometimes there can be just one thought that pushes us through another day and tells us to not give up.
Depression takes motivation away from you which is why the battle is within you. There is a battle going on in your mind and depression seems to take away all logic and sensible thinking. I've been there but I do not doubt you for one second. Giving up isn't like you. Giving up is not an option. I know it feels like you can't but let's do our best to bring some logic into this.
Why can't you overcome the suffering which you experience? If you think you can't, where is the evidence for this? Have you tried absolutely everything that is available to prove the impossible correct? I know I haven't, which is why I can't say can't!
There are still one million things I can try and I know that motivation will not be there everyday. I know depression may hold me down at times but that is no excuse to quit forever. There are many battles throughout the day, but I choose to win the war against depression. I CAN. I WILL. I MUST.

Should Police Respond To Mental Health Calls?

Get 26% off a year of CuriosityStream and get access to Nebula for free: http://www.curiositystream.com/neuro

If you were in a mental health crisis and called for emergency services, who would you want coming to your aid? Right now in the US, local police have shouldered the burden of this kind of crisis response. But...should they? If we agree that our current system is not functioning as intended, then how can we change how mental health calls are dealt with? As a trained mental health professional, I’ll answer these questions and explore how we can develop more robust public health interventions through training, reform, or even full replacement of law enforcement.
