Manage the Cause of Toxic Stress, Not Just the Symptoms

Not all stress is bad as Dr. H explains in this mini episode. It’s important to preserve the patterns of good stress in your life (like exercising or rehearsing for a play) and minimize the parts that promote bad (toxic) stress. 

Toxic stress might give you a headache, make you feel sick to your stomach or cause memory issues. The solution to these issues isn’t to take an aspirin or other pill to alleviate the symptoms and forget about them. The solution is to address the root cause of the toxic stress, whether it’s a relationship, job or other aspect of your life.

The Mental Health and Addiction Consequences of Covid

Dr. Lloyd Sederer became the mental health commissioner of New York City right after the 9/11 terror attack. In this conversation he shares how the lessons he learned from that experience can be applied to the current pandemic, including the impact social isolation, treatment gaps and treatment inequities have on the public, and the disproportionate affect on people of color. 

This broad conversation also touches on how adding structure to your day helps you feel better, the latest treatments for substance use disorders, and why Dr. Sederer believes humans are extremely resilient.

Dr. Lloyd Sederer is an Adjunct Professor at the Columbia University, Mailman School of Public Health and Director of Columbia Psychiatry Media. He served for 12 years as the Chief Medical Officer of the New York State Office of Mental Health, where he continues as Distinguished Psychiatrist Advisor. He has been Executive Deputy Commissioner for Mental Hygiene Services in New York City (the “chief” psychiatrist for NYC), Medical Director and Executive Vice President of McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA (a Harvard teaching hospital), and Director of the Division of Clinical Services for the American Psychiatric Association. He has led the mental health disaster responses to 9/11, Hurricane Sandy and other disasters.
