How to Empower Yourself in Living Well in Spite of Your Mental Health Diagnosis
When Thomas “melted-down” in the small town of only 600 people he felt as though everyone was talking about him and that he had become the town “monster.” So, following his move back to his parents’ home in a metro area, he began a remarkable journey of healing that led him to find hope through Fresh Hope. In this edition of Fresh Hope for Mental Health, Thomas talks about his various diagnoses which include schizoaffective disorder and borderline personality disorder. He discloses the importance of researching and understanding your diagnosis and how medicine does 50% of the work, but you have to do the other 50% of it. Through researching his diagnoses, he became empowered to live well in spite of them. Anyone facing a serious mental health diagnosis will be greatly encouraged in hearing Thomas' journey to living well in spite of a mental health diagnosis. You don't want to miss this interview!
