The Hardcore Self Help Podcast with Duff the Psych

This is a podcast dedicated to answering your questions about mental health, anxiety, depression, relationships, sex, and life WITHOUT psychobabble BS. I am Dr. Robert Duff, a psychologist from Southern California, but I'm also a regular dude who legitimately wants to help out.

Hello, my friends! Just wanted to say thanks again so much for always sending in such awesome, honest, and brave questions. You guys are amazing. In this episode I take a couple questions that are related to dealing with significant others who have mental illness. 

Here are the questions covered:

  • Is there a genetic link for mental illness? Is it inherited from your family?
  • What can I do about my 27 year old daughter who lives at home and is abusive toward me?
  • What can I do about my friend of 20 years who has abandonment issues and drains me emotionally?

As always you can send your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com or hit me up on social media @duffthepsych.

Hello, friends! In this episode I take three new awesome questions. We cover the whole board from going heavy into some complicated terminology about neurobiology and testing all the way to hitting you with some hard truths about "saving" a relationship. Please consider sharing the show with the people in your life and on social media. You never know who might need to hear the answers to these questions. Here are the specific questions covered this episode:

  • Years ago, my IQ was estimated to be low. Can your IQ improve over time and should I be tested again?
  • How can I save my marriage with my wife who has mental illness and drinking issues?
  • What is a normal level of anxiety? When should you get help?

As always you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com or you can hit me up on twitter at http://twitter.com/duffthepsych

So here are the questions covered in this episode:

  • Should I take my friend up on an offer of hypnotherapy/NLP?
  • How can I manage my obsession over the news and fear of the current global climate?
  • Should I be worried about medicating my 8 year old child for serious psychiatric issues?
