Dr. Chisholm talks about where to find the most up-to-date information on mental health therapy, her experience treating patients and teaching, and real-life recovery experiences.

When diagnosing a mental disorder, it’s critical to evaluate the following elements and how they overlap and interact as a practitioner: 1. Do these symptoms appear to be the outcome of a known illness? 2. Are they signs of a personality issue or tendency? 3. Are these symptoms mostly impacted by one’s own actions? , 4. Are they experiencing these symptoms as a result of what they’ve been through in life?

Dr. Margaret Chisolm, MD, FAMEE, FACP, FAAP is Vice-Chair for Education, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences; Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences; and professor of Medicine, at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
