My guest today is Jessica (Jess) Watson Miller, the founder of PsychCrisis.org – a nonprofit working to reform the psychiatric crisis system. Jess has a deeply personal connection to the crisis system and its flaws, and so works passionately to educate others about psychiatric crises and how to manage them, as well as designing new systems and working with current operators to improve their services. I found Jess to have a deep understanding of the issues. She’s well researched, thoughtful and articulate. I truly enjoyed our conversation and I hope you do as well.
In our conversation we discussed the response to mental health crises, anxiety, depression, suicide, the system which is supposed to help with these things, psychology, individuals, cognition, patterns and paradigms, perception, the collective unconscious, conformity, survival, how we see ourselves, stories we tell ourselves and how we might not even realize we’re telling them.
