Personal Statement I have over 30 years experience in this field. I have watched the concept of mental illness change over the years from something weak and shameful to be hiddne to a biochemical imbalance. Now we know which cells are lacking in which part of the brain and lacking in which particular neurotransmitter leading towards a particular illness. We also have many more, safer choices of medication to prescribe.

SInce you can’t ask your parents for a new set of genes to eliminate the genetic influences, and we cannot control what stressors come at us, consider medication to restore the imbalance of your neurotransmitters back to normal – so that you can be the best you can be. Medications can’t do all the work – you have to work in psychotherapy – but they do set the state for change
