When do you know the time has come to seek mental health care? Then, where do you go? To whom do you turn?

It's a critical question in the quest for mental health and wellness, and we don't tend to think about it until there's a crisis.

To explore these questions, Dr. Farha Abbasi, a Michigan State University psychiatrist, and Dr. Julie Braciszewski, a clinical psychologist and director of Monarch Behavioral Health in Bloomfield Hills, joined Stateside today.

Listen above to learn how to talk to loved ones about mental health. You’ll also learn how to destigmatize the process of seeking help, and how psychiatrists and psychologists work together.

Minding Michigan is Stateside’s ongoing series that examines mental health issues in our state.
