    Mental HEALTH vs. Mental ILLNESS - De-Stigmatizing Mental Wellness

    in Women

    There are many misconceptions about mental health; yet, if someone is diagnosed with cancer, we encourage that person to see an oncologist, or to take powerful drugs like chemotherapy if it might help, and to take time off work or school to let themselves heal. Yet - when it’s an addiction or an eating disorder or some other mental illness – it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that someone should be able to get better on their own. What’s up with that? Today’s guest, Bessie Ann Christen with The Parenting Center is here to talk about the stigma of mental illness and steps we can all take to support our spouse, our children’s parent, our friends or family. Tune in to hear more.


    Plaid for Women radio is produced to give you information, advice and resources to manage “The Business of Life”. Our goal is to help you achieve your goals, get connected, and be heard.
