“Hope for those seeking help.”
In any given year, one in four Americans suffer from a diagnosable mental illness–and yet there is still a significant stigma attached to being labeled as “mentally ill.” We hear about worse-case scenarios, but in many–maybe even most–cases, there is much room for hope.
The 18 frank, often intimate true stories collected in Same Time Next Week reflect the writers’ struggles to overcome–both as professionals and as individuals, as current therapists and as former patients–the challenges presented by depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, and other mental disorders.
This collection highlights the need for empathy and compassion between therapist and patient, and argues for a system that encourages human connection rather than diagnosis by checklist.
