Mental Health Conspiracy Theory

A few of my friends and I noticed that children of mental health professionals – e.g. psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, social workers – tend to spend some time in therapy.  We debated whether the cause of this might be a greater awareness of their mental states, a comfort/acceptance of therapy, or that their parents “nurtured” issues in them.  We didn’t really come up with a solid hypothesis, but I have one now: mental health workers are making sure that their peers remain employed/have a source of patients.  Of course!

Kidding aside, I’m glad there is a demographic that embraces therapy.  I’ve yet to meet someone who at some point in their life would not benefit from a professional, unbiased, healthy influence.
