I got to meet Glenn Close last night, what a fabulous person. Check out my psychology today blog to read more about Glenn Close and the screening of Albert Nobbs.
In early December the Dr. Oz show emailed me, asking if I could help them find people who would be willing to be filmed during an ECT session, and then interviewed later. Dr. Oz wanted to do a show on ECT, presenting it as a medical procedure. I helped the staff of the show, giving them reference materials, connecting them with people who I thought could help. As an aside, I said "If you want me to come to NY to be on the show, I could do that too."
Charlie Marsh lived a few doors down from me in London, about a quarter mile from the famous Abbey Road Crossing. I vaguely new about his battle with depression then through his mom, but had the pleasure of interviewing Charlie his Freshman Year at Princeton. Charlie made a bold speech at his American School of London graduation ceremony about his struggle. I did a follow up interview with him after seeing the video called Believing it Gets Better
Convincing the stubborn to accept mental health care can be challenging. Here are some ideas for treatment acceptance.
Here is the blog which Lawyers with Depression asked me to write. Daniel Lukasik offers great resources for lawyers and all of us.
Here is my most recent blog on my Psychology Today page.
i realize I have been negligent in keeping my blogs on my website up to date. Over the past month I've written three blogs which have received far more hits than previous blogs. If you go to this link: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/struck-living, you can see all the blogs I've posted on Psychology Today. The two blogs i wrote, one on innovation and one on the challege freshman in college seem to face with regard to mental health have resonated with many.
Can uncertainty be key to inspiration? Here is my most recent Psychology Today blog.
