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.  For that matter it can be difficult to even know for sure if a client is struggling with mental illness of what they are going through is "normal".  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.

Everyone will be talking about Robin Williams today, so we don't need to.  However, his passing has opened a window to talk about mental illness in the greater consciousness in a way we haven't had before.  So, are going to discuss how to gracefully do that dance and those conversations with clients.
