Steering into the hard stuff-- A father and husband's story

Back from the Abyss: Psychiatry in Stories

Nov 10 2020 • 43 mins


Dr. H sits down with his friend Brian, who watched his daughter, and then his wife, plunge into the depressive abyss.   This is the journey of a father and husband, of a "we can fix this" engineer trying to find a path through the ambiguity and uncertainty of psychiatric treatment.

This is the second in an intermittent series of family members describing their journey of trying to support their loved ones through their darkest times.
