It seems to be a dirty word, but it must not be before real progress can be made in overcoming this situation that is so common today. In my former career, I was a psychiatric nurse, working as a mental health professional for some 15 years working in Sydney’s community psych system too after my brother died of a drug overdose in Kings Cross in 1981. After the psych hospitals were closed, I retrained as a Veterinarian. In 2010 the Uni of QLD awarded me a PhD in dog therapy.

I am a cross-discipline mental health professional with much to say on the topic of depression. Medication is needed to treat pain including psychic pain.
