“Psychotherapy is what God has been secretly doing for centuries by other names; that is, he searches through our personal history and heals what needs to be healed – the wounds of childhood or our own self-inflicted wounds.” – Thomas Keating
History of National Psychotherapy Day
National Psychotherapy Day was founded by clinical psychologist Dr. Ryan Howes and a group of professionals and students. The celebration of this day marks the promotion, research, and support for all those who need psychotherapy. The clinicians, clients, and therapy advocates will unite and promote the profession, how to combat stigma, educate the public, and will draw attention to the needs of community mental health. The aim of this day is to raise awareness and combat misconceptions with the help of therapists. It is mentioned that one in four people have mental illness and emotional problems which need to be treated properly. Psychotherapy is not only for the individuals who need a diagnosis or are in a crisis, but it also helps those wanted to enhance their happiness.
