A mental illness is, like any other illness, a way out of balance. My role, as a psychiatrist, is that of a guide…. a guide who is with the suffering person and helps him to better understand the experience he is going through as well as what he can do to regain his inner balance and the strength to move forward. I am that guide who helps the sufferer understand the potential of his mind and how he can use that potential in his own healing process. I am that guide who helps the suffering to rediscover joy.
