So you’ve been diagnosed with a mental health disorder and are wondering, “what does this mean?” You’re not alone.
Honestly, mental health diagnoses are from a period in psychology where mental health professionals were trying to be seen as valid in a medical environment. We tried to adapt to the medical model, but it doesn’t quite capture the unique experiences of our struggles.
In this video, Dr.Jessica defines what a mental health diagnosis is, where does it come from, how is it used, and different ways you can think about your own diagnosis. Dr. Jessica also proposes some alternative ways to view your symptoms, issues, problems (aka the stuff that shows up for you) in a more holistic way.
