Stigma Takes Lives!

Often the worst part of a mental illness is not the illness itself but the societal shunning that results from it. Mental illness hits 20% of Americans every year, but because of shame and stigma, many never seek the help they need.
There’s no shame in mental illness. Most highly intelligent, creative people have one or another form of it. The damage is done by keeping it hidden, where it festers, warps, grows, and takes over the soul. Open up to the world. Never worry alone.
Stigma and the recent suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain are some of the topics Dr. Hallowell discusses in his video on Stigma Takes Lives.

Let’s start a grass roots movement to eliminate the stigma and shame associated with mental illness.
Learn more in my podcast on “End the Stigma of Mental Health.

Stimulants and ADHD

May is Mental Health Month. This video is about stimulant medication, more specifically the general stigma that steers people away from trying them as part of treatment for ADHD.  Used properly under medical supervision, stimulant medications are safe and effective, but most people are terrified of them and do not want to even consider trying them. I address this issue in this video

This month, my Note from Ned is a Video from Ned.  That’s a first for us, but I think we will do it more often, as people like video often more than print.

I hope you like this piece and share it.  Please send us feedback about the video format and let us know what you think.  You can always email me directly at drhallowell@gmail.com

When medication works, it works as safely and dramatically as eyeglasses. Medication helps about 80% of the time in the treatment of ADD. Make sure you work with a doctor who can explain the issues around medication to you clearly. Most people do not realize how safe and effective stimulant medications truly are, when they are used properly. Make sure you work with a doctor who has plenty of experience with these medications. The stimulants include medications like Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, Vyvanse, Focalin, and others. As long as you take them under proper medical supervision, they can help you immensely.
