You can read a short article about Bobby Baker’s difficulties with severe depression and her evolving impressions about therapy and DBT in particular.  A short video interview can be found here, and if you scroll down you can listen to a 90 minute audio-visual discussion with the artist and Professor Bhui who works as an academic psychiatrist in London, England.  Your comments are welcomed.
