On ‘Psychology Behind the Headlines’, host Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest therapist Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant discuss the challenges people face when accessing quality mental health care.

Patients Feel Disconnected

When mental health isn’t prioritized, patients often feel unheard and less likely to follow through with treatment, leading to poorer mental health outcomes.

System Needs Change

Both doctors and the larger healthcare system need to re-evaluate how mental health is addressed, with a greater focus on patient needs and genuine connection.
