00:0000:00

Hi, listeners!  I just want to thank you all for all the support, messages, and positivity!  My little fan-base is growing and I truly appreciate every like, share, and download!

In this episode, the last of a four part series for #Mentalhealthawareness month, I talk about how to find a therapist that is right for you.  

I list out factors to consider about your therapist like: cost, affordability, geographical location, types of licensed therapists, and specialties.  I, of course, mention how you should find a provider who matches your style and someone who makes you feel emotionally safe.

A Deep Dive Into Depression- Stigma, Meds, and Therapy

00:0000:00

Hello listeners!  It’s me, Cristal Martinez Acosta, Licensed Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified counselor. It's #mentalhealthawarenessmonth and this episode is part 3 of 4!

In this episode, my special guest, Carlos, speaks about his depression.  I have to say, this is one of the most candid and detailed interviews I have had on the podcast.

He talks about how being a gay, depressed college student in a mostly-Hispanic/Catholic community takes its toll.  We talk about his struggle with depression, anxiety, and a history of suicidal thoughts.  We also discuss medication types, side effects, how to help a depressed person, and of course, THERAPY. 

 

He has a special message for all of you out there who are battling mental illness at 18:15. 

If you or someone you know needs immediate counseling from the National Suicide Prevention hotlines you can text the number 741-741 or call 1800-273-8255 any time of day or night.
