Introducing Diary of a TherapistEven amongst people with a mental health issue or a mental illness, there remains discrimination. Women and many other minorities suffer from additional hurdles when seeking treatment, or when asserting their rights in treatment. Television often portrays minorities — and minority women especially — in a certain light that’s all too often unflattering or plays into well-worn stereotypes.

That’s why I’m pleased to present our newest blog, Diary of a Therapist with Jameca Falconer, Ph.D. Dr. Falconer will help explore these complex issues on this blog from her experienced perspective as an accomplished counseling psychologist, educator, entrepreneur and civic leader. You can learn more about her diverse and rich background here.

Please give Dr. Falconer a warm Psych Central welcome over on her new blog, Diary of a Therapist now!
