Drugs and Mental Illness

May 29, 2019

There is a connection between people that may use drugs and mental illness and also how mental illness may be impacted by the use of drugs; we talk about all that on this episode. The conversation is about some people’s state of mind and how they try to make themselves feel better by self-medicating. If and when you begin to see signs of a problem some of the most important steps are recognizing them and trying to accept them.
