In this episode, Abs & Mags are joined by Dr. Robert C. Smith--University Distinguished Professor and a Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry at Michigan State University. With many publications, awards, and strong grant support, he has been involved in teaching and research in patient-centered communication and in primary care mental health since 1985. Our sometimes shocking conversation about "How Medicine Has Lost Its Mind" (which is also the title of Dr. Smith's forthcoming book)will change your view of the practice of medicine, particularly regarding mental health care. It is a must-listen!
Join the Anxiety Sisters in their deeply personal conversation with Alison Malmon, the Founder and Executive Director of Active Minds, the largest nonprofit mobilizing young adults to change the conversation about mental health in America. As a suicide loss survivor, Alison is determined to normalize and destigmatize the subject of mental health so that young people struggling with anxiety, depression and other issues can receive the help they need. Listen to this powerful and sometimes difficult discussion and learn real ways you can help the people in your life who face mental health challenges.
Join Abs, Mags and their special guest, Dr. Aron Tendler (Chief Medical Officer of Brainsway)as they discuss Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) which is a relatively new treatment for depression and now Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Learn how it works and if you may be a good candidate for the treatment.
