Please help raise mental health awareness

Feb 6, 2011

Dr. Frascino,

I've been reading some of the questions that have been sent to you and I am shocked by the number of people who can be categorized as having extreme anxiety, paranoia, and other mental health disorders. Truly, this is a problem that needs to be addressed. Mental health unfortunately remains a taboo subject in our society. I am still shocked at the number of barbershop related questions I have seen! Please promote mental health counseling and awareness alongside your noble efforts regarding STDs.

Response from Dr. Frascino


What you see posted is only a very small percentage of the high-anxiety questions that overstuff my inbox on a daily basis from the "psychiatrically-challenged." As for promoting mental health counseling, I just did a quick search of the archives of this forum using the key words "psychotherapy counseling." It returned 1850 hits from my recent responses!
