Cultivating a healthy relationship can be hard enough. . . but what if you also struggle with mental health issues like depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar, or a spicy little cocktail of several together?
Mental health issues can distort your perception. If you experience anxiety, a social event can feel like impending doom. Depression can create a mental filter that singles out only the bad events. It’s hard to see things as they really are because the way we feel has such an effect on the way we experience reality.
If you have struggled with mental illness, it’s important to have a partner that you can communicate with so he or she can understand your unique needs.
So today we’re gonna walk you through it so that you feel confident navigating relationships, from that scary initial conversation, to the day to day challenges.
Our guest is Allison Raskin, a New York Times bestselling author, actress, director and co-creator of the YouTube comedy channel and podcast, Just Between Us. She’s also the author of Overthinking About You.
We Will Learn
- How mental health can impact power dynamics in relationships.
- Navigating what’s you and what’s your disorder.
- How to talk about mental health with your partner.
