Mental Health


Mental health is one of my favorite subjects. Maybe because we are all at risk for a psychological breakdown. Maybe because I have seen and experienced many mental health problems in my own environment. Friends and family have been afflicted with chemical dependency, depression, bi-polar and risk for suicide. I find it curious, though, that the designer condition, among my friends’ children, especially teen girls, seems to be bipolar or borderline. These girls all know the terms and almost seem to enjoy "schlepping around" (hanging around) the psych unit in their PJs. I wonder about some of these privileged girls and if psych care and diagnosis makes them even more coddled?
