When someone is part of a family that experienced trauma in previous generations, they may adapt to that trauma much as Abuela’s grandchildren did: taking on roles they didn’t necessarily want, and making choices to please the family rather than being true to themselves. It’s a lot of pressure. Mind on Mental Health’s Andy Dean and therapist Aracely Reyes wrap up this deep dive into the topic in this week’s episode.   For more information on Penn Medicine – Princeton House Behavioral Health: Princeton House Behavioral Health (princetonhcs.org)   Follow us on Facebook! facebook.com/princetonhousebh

Have you ever heard someone say that a person is “bipolar” or describe themselves as “OCD”? In the Mental Health Misnomers series, we discuss what these terms actually mean in a clinical mental health setting and compare that to how people tend to use the terms in everyday life.  Each of the three episodes focuses on one singular mental health issue including Bipolar Disorder, Depression, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Licensed Clinical Social Workers Andy Dean and Peter Maclearie deconstruct our misnomers. Guest Pete Maclearie, LCSW, is Clinical Manager of Adult Outpatient Services at Penn Medicine Princeton House Behavioral Health in Eatontown, NJ.    For more information on Penn Medicine – Princeton House Behavioral Health: Princeton House Behavioral Health (princetonhcs.org)   Follow us on Facebook! facebook.com/princetonhousebh
