In this week’s Psych Central Show, Our hosts Gabe Howard and Vincent M. Wales discuss feelings of guilt surrounding a mental illness diagnosis. Lots of us feel guilty about our diagnosis or our symptoms. We feel badly for the effect it has on our loved ones, especially when they don’t sympathize. Where does this stigma come from?

How do we help our loved ones understand, and how do we move past this self-condemnation? Listen in to learn more.
