It can feel like slippery territory. It's very difficult for a coach to know how to help a client who is suffering from mental illness.

They say there are very clear lines between coaching and therapy, and there is no place those lines are suppose to be more defined than around mental illness, and yet, when you're in it with a client, it can be anything but clear.
