If you are in an agency, the workload is much greater than the pay and status you experience.
We can change all of that. We can restore therapy to a place of primacy in treating mental health problems. And that is by knowing the truth. The truth about how many more people want our services than want pills. The truth about how therapy is clearly more effective over the long term than pills. The truth about side-effects. The truth about what actually is the biggest cause of most mental disorders.
Once you know the truth about the superiority of therapy, you can speak it. You can share it with referral sources to get more clients into your private practice. You can inform the public, so that they see you as the first choice for treating their depression and anxiety. Your agency can educate funders to ensure stable support for the work you do. The Primacy of Therapy Project is here to inspire and teach you how your work deserves pre-eminence in treating most mental disorders. It is here to let you know how good you are right now, and how great you can become.
