For your friends and family needing psychiatric diagnosis and treatment Overlake Medical Center offers a wide variety of premier services. Very important, they have highly trained science-oriented doctors. Kaiser Permanente in Factoria also offers excellent behavioral health services. Poor mental health is often inherited. My brother, sister, a cousin and I have a spectrum of mild mental health conditions. It's difficult for many to talk and live with the illness because mental health conditions are stigmatized in our culture. Employers may discriminate and some acquaintances might ignore you. To get hired and protect one's career many with "the disease" remains silent.
Dale Chihuly, too, has struggled with his mental health. Now 75 and still in the thrall of a decades-long glass artist career, he discussed his bipolar mood disorder in detail for the first time in an interview with The Associated Press. Several photos of his amazing glass art are included in this article.
