Join me, Elizabeth Brawley, Southern Regional Director as your host on Dreamcatcher Blog Talk Radio as I share on a myriad of topics surrounding the issue of childhood abuse. Tonite's topic will focus on the aftermath of child abuse and the connection to mental illness diagnoses, some of which are controversial and often misunderstood even by the medical community. The devastation from child abuse may not be noticeable for years, decades perhaps even until the survivor is way into their adult years. The psychological impact and damage from abuse seen decades later is quite often devastating even debilitating. Many people who are or have been in treatment for mental health illnesses are often survivors of child abuse as well. Depression, anxiety, & addictions are linked to the aftermath of abuses in childhood. Join me for candid conversation on this very sensitive subject tonite. Let's help erase the stigma attached to mental illnesses by shedding light on what they are and are Not.
