In this 30 Days of MD post, Briana Mills shares why she chose to become a therapist and advocate for the mental health of those with disabilities.
Here’s an excerpt: “Unfortunately, many disabled individuals experience isolation, constant grief, or feelings of not being valued. Mental health is extremely important, especially in the disability community. I decided that I would be a therapist for those like myself, who felt isolated and had no one to relate to about their feelings as a disabled individual.”
