Web Chat—When Someone You Love Has Mental Illness: How to Help

Dec 18, 2012

In the wake of last week’s tragedy in Connecticut, Madhurani Khare, MD, of Princeton House Behavioral Health will host a Web chat at noon on Thursday, December 20, to discuss mental health issues.

Dr. Khare, double board certified in general psychiatry and adolescent and child psychiatry, will take questions from a live Internet audience following a presentation that will focus on topics such as:

  • Recognizing signs that you or someone else may need help
  • Where to find help
  • How to encourage family and friends to seek help when needed
  • The stigma attached to mental illness in our society
