Mental health has long been a spot of contention in our social discourse a source of misunderstanding, fear, discrimination, and injustice. Perhaps no issue is more stigmatized than medication management: simply stated, the use of medication to treat symptoms of mental illness. Medication won’t change who you are, not every medication works the same for every person. Medication is not an “easy fix”. It’s not supposed to be, do not discontinue your medication when you feel better. Holistic approaches to mental health are great – just know your limits.
