Mental illness can cause a person to feel alone, and misunderstood. Individuals may also feel overwhelmed, hopeless, and fearful that they will never feel better. If the individual struggling happens to be a child, worrying is relentless for the caregivers. Those struggling with mental health symptoms, also deserve to feel, that they are being heard. It is the role of the psychiatric nurse practitioner to support, to educate, to validate, to give hope, as well as to treat, utilizing a combination of psychiatric medication and psychotherapy.

When the worry, or the pain, or the fear of our current situation is standing in front of us like a brick wall, what if we could see beyond it? What if we could literally stand on our toes and look OVER it? Would seeing what lies beyond the present change how it's affecting us? When triggered by the right stressors, the genes we are born with can lead to anxiety, depression, mood swings, substance abuse, suicidal thoughts, hallucinations. And throughout life, we may experience abuse, neglect, loss, poverty, trauma and situations that make us feel “stuck.”
