In this post, Nathan Gould discusses how uncomfortable, unfair and unhelpful labelling someone with a diagnosis can be.
It can’t be like when we have a physical ailment – a broken arm, the flu, something else. It’s not as straightforward as that.
Nathan discusses this in depth. It is helpful for both professionals but also for people suffering with mental health and feeling disheartened by getting diagnosed and treated as a diagnosis rather than as a person.
There are many of us out there that want to help the person not the diagnosis.
