Hello. I'm a 32 yo social worker with my own struggles due to depression and anxiety going back to childhood. I'm having a hard time finding any sort of forum for people in the field looking for support for their own struggles unless it is related to burn out.

I haven't heard of anyone here hanging out a shingle as a MH professional, so maybe what you are specifically looking for is not here.  It is a good forum when people finally respond, but it's been very sleepy of late.

 

I'm rather puzzled by the mental health field in general.  They have such piss poor tools and systems to try to help people with.  Frankly I don't know how you even imagine that you're helping anyone at all.  What is the point of the torture it all tends to amount to?

 

That being said, I'm sick of the amount of mentally ill people who are just stuck, and are unwilling to try to help themselves.  No one has any magic key that will unlock your happiness.  It takes work and is not found in a hand full of pills.

 

I wish both sides of the fence were just honest with each other.

 

Welcome to the forum.
