Reflections: One Therapist’s Perspective on Mental Health. Join me as I share an insider’s perspective on mental health and therapy. Why should I go to a therapist? How do I find a good therapist? How are therapists different? What is therapy going to look like? Michael Mann is an associate Marriage and Family Therapist passionate about educating the public about mental health services.
When should I go see a therapist?
Michael takes several important detours on his way to answering the question of when you should go see a therapist, including teasing out the difference between the medical model of mental health and a model focused more on growth and flourishing.
What is an MFT?
Rather than a simple dictionary definition, how does an MFT think of his title? Michael differentiates between marriage and family therapists and other mental health professionals, hopefully to help you understand a little better what those letters after your therapist's name means.
