This is part 2/2 for my series of interviews about Ketamine treatments. In this episode, I interview Jamie AKA “The Gloomy Optimist” about her personal experiences with the treatments that she says saved her life.
Friends. If there is one interview of mine that you listen to, let it be this one. In this interview, I talk to Dr. Steven Mandel, the founder of the Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles. Ketamine is one of the most effective mental health treatments that very few people seem to talk about. To me this is a shame. It’s amazingly effective treatment for depression, suicidality, PTSD, and bipolar.
In the interview, we talk about why Ketamine works, what an actual session looks like, and how it is a very low-risk procedure. We also address some common misconceptions and even get into the nitty gritty of cost/feasibility.
Please share this episode with your friends, families, and networks.
This is the first of a two-part series. Next week, I will be sharing an interview with an individual who describes their personal experience and amazing benefit from Ketamine treatments for depression.
I should note that I have no personal stake in the Ketamine Clinics. I simply believe that it’s a treatment that should gain more exposure.
For this week’s episode of Hardcore Self Help, I’m talking about when you just can’t get rid of depression. You’ve had depression for a long time and you’re sick of it. You’re tired of feeling exhausted, upset, irritable, and hopeless. Maybe it’s even gotten to the point that you have seen a therapist and agreed to take psychiatric medication. Maybe you’ve even been hospitalized because of it. Despite your best efforts, though… the depression still lingers. It still holds you back and you just can’t seem to shake it the way that the books say you should be able to. I know it’s frustrating, but there is hope still. In this post, I will talk about some options when the normal interventions don’t seem to work and you just can’t get rid of depression.
