Sometimes you just have to start from the side

Standard

I’ve been working in the mental health field for over four years. Prior to that I worked backstage in a professional theatre. There were many times that I had difficulty distinguishing between the two. The Drama Queen might be the one on stage or the one you are helping to admit on an inpatient unit. The difference between the creative dreamer and the man talking to the invisible cow could just be a matter of medication levels. In both environments, a sense of humor became very important, as did a sense of teamwork and comradery.

With this blog I set out to put down some of the things I remember, a few of the things I learned, and perhaps just ramble on here and there. You are welcome to join me.
