There certainly has been a lot of talk in the news and social media lately about the "Don't say Gay," bill in Florida and the anti-trans mandates from the governor of Texas. Sadly, there are even more such laws and mandates around the country. In this episode I invited Dr. Jessica Rabon to the podcast to discuss these issues from a Mental Health standpoint. I think you will love this discussion full of information.
Dr. Jess is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in pediatric psychology. Her clinical interests include depression, anxiety, chronic medial illnesses, LGBTQ+ health, and eating disorders. She has published a number of peer-reviewed research papers and a book on topics such as suicide, depression anxiety, self-compassion, gratitude, and forgiveness. Additionally, Dr. Jess creates mental health content on social media and hosts her own podcast, Psych Talk, with the goal of making mental health more accessible and relatable, and destigmatizing mental health.
