Episode #002 - The Program

Here's the second episode where I talk about starting a day program at a local hospital. Day (also known as partial) programs are half day education sessions for those who need a little more intensive therapy than once a week, but they aren't in a place where they are an immediate threat to themselves or others.

  • Intro:
    • Hoping this show turns into something that helps others.
    • 1st episode critiques
    • Still using early contact info
  • Show:
    • Discuss different hospital programs.
      • Psych wards
      • Partial/Day
    • Didn't want to put on my "happy" face at the program.
    • Breathing exercises
    • Arts and crafts
    • I talk about how I am embarrassed that I don't seem to have a defining moment of when my depression began. How it makes me feel my illness in unauthentic.

That's the gist of it, with some other things tossed in. I did mention DBSA which is a great resource for mental illness.

Thanks for listening.
