I’ve interviewed 67 people who have been helped by therapy, and here are the top 5 struggles that these people have overcome:

  1. Anxiety (47 posts)
  2. Depression (38 posts)
  3. Childhood (17 posts)
  4. Stress (13 posts)
  5. PTSD (11 posts)

In our many years of publishing helpful mental health content, we always received questions from our readers about specific situations. While we have a lot of helpful tips to share on how to be happier, we simply can’t offer advice for every situation.

That’s why I’ve set out to interview folks with every type of mental health struggle. My job as an interviewer is to categorize these interviews and present them in a way that is most helpful to our readers.

“I wish I knew that I was worthy of the treatment and that everything I felt was valid. Because it is, no one is the same. Even with the same condition, we are all different. I was scared of what was happening to me. I was full of hatred, sadness, guilt, disappointment in the world, etc., but sometimes I still am! And that’s valid.”

Therapy and Medication Helped Me Overcome Depression, Anxiety and Burnout From Work

Finding My Way Through Bipolar, BPD, and PTSD With Therapy and Medication

“Something that I wish I had known earlier in my mental health journey is that my mental illness does not need to define me. I stopped using the phrase ‘I am Bipolar/BPD’ and instead I say, ‘I have…’ I did this when I noticed how overidentifying with my diagnosis was hindering rather than helping me.”
