I had a desire to help individuals get to the root of their problem, which was often related to their mental health but was not addressed during their treatment. It was common for me, while working as a nurse, to interact with patients who were often unaware of their mental health conditions and would seek treatment for other physical ailments, while neglecting their mental health care. This often happened as a result of the stigma associated with seeking treatment for mental health.
