PERSONAL STATEMENTS

My personal and professional experience have led me to understand that suffering from mental health problems can be more severe and debilitating than physical illness. People often struggle in silence because of the social stigma and poor access to mental health resources. This does not have to be the case. With the right help, many people can thrive and even go on to make full recoveries. I take into consideration past experiences, current circumstances and future goals to help the patient decide the best way forward for them.
— Arnold Fosah, PMHNP
 
My interest in psychiatry evolved from working with underserved populations and in cross-cultural communication. Self-stigma and negative attitudes towards persons with mental illness decrease the likelihood of personally considering psychiatric help. A useful strategy for me to further improve the public image of psychiatry is to stress that listening and understanding are at the core of psychiatric care.
