Hello and welcome to Therapist’s Log: Supplemental. In this blog, I use my experience as a mental health counselor and science fiction lover to examine sci-fi through a mental health lens.
For the next eleven weeks, I’ll be posting weekly about the Caregivers of Star Trek.
One of the most fascinating things about Star Trek is that it is a look to the future from the past. Even through the ships are powered by dilithium crystals, the understanding of mental health can feel ‘outdated’. As outdated, one might say, as this scene of two of TNG’s leads working out in leotards.
I deeply enjoy thinking about science fiction and mental health topics, and I hope you enjoy my writings.
