The End of Kim & Kanye? The Devastating Effect of Mental Health Issues on Relationships with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie Esq. #161

In this very special episode, Susan Guthrie visits again with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, "The Divorce Doctor," to discuss many ways that mental health issues can negatively affect our relationships and how that plays out in divorce.

For the past several months the tabloid covers at the grocery checkout have been filled with headlines predicting the imminent divorce of "Kimye" a/k/a Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West.  These headlines follow on the heels of numerous stories and articles highlighting the many ups and downs of relationship that has seemed to be challenged in the face of Kanye West's struggles with bi-polar disorder.  His many highs and lows have played out in the public eye and have highlighted the often swept under rug challenges couples face when one, or both, are dealing with mental health issues.  Our favorite psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Cohen returns with a compassionate but pragmatic discussion of the difficulties that people face when they or a loved one are challenged by mental health issues.  

In this episode Dr. Elizabeth shares:

  • How additional stressors, such as divorce or relationship issues, can impact mental health.
  • Why treatment is not a sign of weakness.
  • What she means by "we need to honor hope."
  • Why falling in love makes us so vulnerable.
  • How to deal with a partner who may be suicidal.

AND SO MUCH MORE!

Statistics say that marriages where one of the partners is struggling with mental health issues are 2x more likely to end in divorce and when the mental health issue is a bi-polar dianosis, the couple is 95% more likely to divorce.  This is an issue that will affect you or someone you love and it's time to shine a light on these mental health challenges so listen to this episode today!
