Candace - found your blog from your sister's FB :) August 13, 2015 - 4:13 pm

I think reducing stigma for mental illness and even mental health treatment is paramount to improving the quality of our patient’s lives or even saving lives. Both in research and in practice, reducing stigma is one of my personal missions. I appreciate your perspectives and willingness to put your experiences out there… all of us young professionals are undoubtably thinking about the same things! -Candace (Ph.D. student)

Hi Candace! Thank u so much for the comment! My sis is such a huge supporter of my blog…I appreciate you checking out my posts. We definitely share the same mission of ridding of the stigma of mental illness and believe one way to do so is to share experiences. I think we/ our new generation of mental health professionals have the potential to make great strides towards that goal. Best of luck in grad school (and don’t forget selfcare)!!

I love your IG, snaps, & blog! Have you ever blogged about non-physician doctors (PhDs, for example) and mental health?

Hi there! OMG i’m soooo sorry for the late reply as I miss comments sometimes! And yes, I’ve had posts, esp guest posts on non-physician docs and mental health 🙂

Thanks for what you do. I found out about your blog from a colleague. I’m a psychiatrist (practicing psychiatry for 11 years now) in the Philippines, where there are only 500 of us, taking care of a population of 100 million. Psychiatrist burnout is real. Thank you for pointing that out in your blog.

I write better than this. But I suppose I am pretty burnt out. Heehee. Resting now. Hope to see you at APA or other international fora.

Hi doc! You know I’ve actually sent a message to the Phillipine Psychiatric Association asking if I could volunteer my services there for a few months and I never received a reply! That was several years ago…I was very disappointed especially since I’d love to give back to my country of heritage (I am Filipino as well). Thank u for the work u do…I hope that the importance of psychiatry grows so that more will join the field and hopefully u will have less burnout while people also get more access to the care they need ❤
