On this Season 2 premiere of Menninger's Mind Dive podcast, hosts Robert Boland, MD, and Kerry Horrell, PhD, dive into topics posed by their colleagues that have not yet been explored on the podcast.
In this mailbag episode, listen in as our hosts discuss topical questions on the minds of mental health professionals at The Menninger Clinic and their implications on clinical practice.
  • A new social contagion—self-diagnosis of mental health disorders. Is TikTok to blame for young adults self-diagnosing attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dissociative identity disorder (DID) before consulting a professional?
  • The real relationship between mental health and mass gun violence. Is psychiatry truly the answer to combatting this crisis?
  • Addressing the disconnect between physical and mental health. Should attending therapy be considered as important to your physical health as eating vegetables or hitting the gym?
Dr. Boland is senior vice president and chief of staff at The Menninger Clinic. He is also vice chair of the Menninger Department of Psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine, where is also serves as the Brown Foundation Endowed Chair in Psychiatry.
Dr. Horrell is a staff psychologist on Menninger’s Compass Program for Young Adults as well as the coordinator of the Youth Division. She is also an assistant professor at Baylor College of Medicine.
