On today’s podcast we talked with Cherlette McCullough, a local therapist in Central Florida, who specializes in marriage and family therapy.  We discussed how to help a loved one who is seeking or currently in inpatient care for mental health or substance use related issues.  We covered when to seek treatment options for your loved one, getting help and what getting help looks like.  We also discussed normalizing mental health diagnoses and what next steps look like after a hospitalization.  Lastly, we discussed the needs of supportive loved ones and helpful resources.  We hope you enjoy listening!
