Ending Stigma with Dr. Jessica Clemons

0:00

Publisher's Summary

From board-certified psychiatrist and social media star Dr. Jessica Clemons, a.k.a. “Dr. Jess”, comes Be Well, a comprehensive, accessible guide to the most common mental health conditions, treatments, and overcoming the stigma surrounding these topics to seek out the care you and your loved ones deserve. 

Most of us know how to take care of ourselves physically - we do our best to exercise, eat well, and get enough sleep - but when it comes to our inner lives, we tend to be far less diligent. Not only do we move through our unrelenting to-do lists with no time and space to recharge, we’re not even aware of many of the (often invisible) symptoms effecting the tens of millions of Americans living with mental illness.  

Dr. Jess is working every day to change that. A New York City psychiatrist and social media star, she’s made it her mission to make mental health care universally accessible and to reduce stigma associated with mental illness, particularly in the Black community. Be Well is an informative, inspiring audio experience that will teach listeners all about anxiety, depression, therapy, daily practices for more mindful living, navigating the health-care system, and much more.  

No matter where you are on your mental health journey, Be Well is the perfect primer for understanding and maintaining this critical (and too often overlooked) element of wellness.

Thank you Jessica Clemons for writing this audible original

I have been a psychotherapist for 40 years and I think her information is accurate, helpful, personal and so educational about the field of mental health, self-help, wellness and healing.
Mental health should not be a stigma.

A good production with concerns over motive

One thing to note is that I did not know the author prior to listening, as the production was included (read free) material in my subscription. The production is largely a good one with topics that are important to discuss. It is a good exercise, however, to ask what the motive is. And no part of a piece is more telling about motive than the beginning and end. And the author starts the book about the difficulties of her upbringing and ends with her defense of using social media for her practice. One especially personal story in the production is where she received criticism from a colleague for her glamour shots and use of social media. I would be lying if I knew what the colleague said; but I do have an initial question to ask the author regarding her work, and it might relate to your colleague. What do you want to be? A practitioner or a celebrity? And this is a fair criticism that the likes Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz have dealt with...

Fantastic!

I learned so much about different mental health issues and how to discuss these topics with friends and family. I actually had never heard of Dr. Jess although now researching her and seeing her social media presence she’s fantastic! I was pleasantly surprised to have found this book and learned so much to help not only myself but others. I’m a total Dr. Jess fan now! Don’t hesitate on listening to this one you will love it!
