By sharing her experiences, she aims to inspire others to prioritise their mental well-being and foster a more compassionate understanding of mental health issues.

In an exclusive comment to Briefly News, neuroscience coach Candice Lambert explains the advantages of scheduling an appointment at a mental :

"I have had to coach family members of the actual person themselves on going into a psychiatric hospital for evaluation and treatment. There are various reasons someone would be eligible for such admission and the common ones are hurting or having a need to hurt themselves or others (often times it’s a suicide case), unable to function on their normal capacity and having the inability to make sound decisions.
"Mostly that counselling or other interventions will not work. The benefits is that there would be an evaluation that would take place for approximately 72 hours and then treatment would begin based on a diagnosis; either in-patient or out-patient depending on the scenario and what is best for the patient. Getting intense, focused treatment will definitely benefit patients needing such care. Healing is the biggest benefit here."
