Does recovery really work? Is COVID changing the future of mental health? What inspired Patrick to open up about the Kennedy family’s experience with substance use?
In the first of three new ‘Pillar Episodes,’ we want to help you, our listener, get to know the remarkable people at the helm of Psych Hub and The Future Of Mental Health Podcast. In this episode, we get somewhat raw and vulnerable with our extraordinary hosts, Psych Hub’s Marjorie Morrison, and Former Politician Patrick Kennedy.
“My family, like everyone else’s, didn’t want to talk about these issues. We kept them silent and secret, and we were largely in denial – and as a result, all of our illnesses never got treated properly. They got a lot worse…the fact that we’ve never had people being able to speak up for themselves within the medical system means the medical system really hasn’t been responsive. And hence most of us get treated at the very end of a long pathology of these illnesses, and it’s very hard to recover”. Patrick Kennedy
Psych Hub co-founders Marjorie Morrison and Patrick J. Kennedy have been fighting for a preventative approach to mental health throughout their careers. Morrison spent a year writing and implementing a revolutionary proactive counseling program for the U.S. Marines before founding PsychArmor, the nation’s leading organization providing military mental health education. While serving as a US Congressman, Patrick fought to end discrimination against mental illness, substance use , and other brain disorders. He is best known as the lead sponsor of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act. The Federal Parity Law requires insurers to cover treatment for mental health and substance use disorders on par with treatment for physical health illnesses like diabetes and cancer.
Listen today as Patrick J. Kennedy and Marjorie Morrison talk about why Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is their favorite form of therapy for them personally, the broad changes that we need in the healthcare industry to improve the future of mental health, and so much more.
