Juliana works as a DCR, or designated crisis responder, and as someone who evaluates others to determine whether they need psychiatric help, she found herself in a situation where she was in her client’s shoes. She noticed things were off, like the inability to handle stressful situations, or when she didn’t sleep for 24 hours.
One day, she decided to call 911 to be checked in voluntarily so she could be evaluated. She had a police officer take away her weapon and escort her to the emergency room.
She comes on to talk about the time she checked herself into a mental facility, and how much it really cost her. We also discuss how she’s more empathetic towards others’ financial situations when it comes to mental health, and why she does not regret the thousands of dollars she’s spent (and continues to spend to take care of her needs)
