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, all. A big content warning for this episode, the first question deals with suicide and has a bit more detail than other questions I've answered on the show. It's a very worthwhile question and a great topic to discuss, but I just want to make you aware of that.

Here are the topics covered in this Q&A episode:

  • I saw my elderly father kill himself and I am so angry at him. What can I do?
  • My friend stopped medication for anxiety and depression, but she is thinking about starting again. What else can she do to help herself out?

As always, you can send me questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and find the show notes to this episode at http://duffthepsych.com/episode308
