Part II of II: Managing Mental Illness in a High-Powered Job

Posted By: wbhazel1 on November 9, 2011 at 1:46 pm

I found these letters to the editor published by The New York Times to help in part support things I’m sure all of us tell our clients but it’s nice to see it in print as handy handouts.

As I tell all my clients past and present that there is no shame in having a mental health disorder to include an addiction.

They in care will often become aware of the conditions of others either richer, more famous, higher ranking etc.

These conditions do not discriminate: They strike all races, genders, creeds, as well as socioeconomic groups.Many if not all are chronic, possibly debilitating conditions if left untreated but can be managed like diabetes, hypertension and so many other less stigmatized conditions.

That is why I am especially thankful for The American Society of Addiction Medicine which recently released for the first time a concise and usable definition of Addiction as not a moral failing but a chronic brain disorder.

Please enjoy these letters to The New York Times Editor as well as the article to which they respond.

It’s fascinating and dispels many stereotypes which preclude our clients from the greatness that they can achieve:
