Introducing Diane Solomon
One of my first guests is Diane Solomon. She is a mental health nurse practitioner who also has a son on the autism spectrum. Her son is the youngest of 4 beautiful children. She was a nurse midwife who did not believe in the use of prescription medications... then learned to appreciate their support with post-partum women with challenging depression. This new understanding guided her into her own pursuit to become a mental health nurse practitioner who could prescribe such medications. Later, when faced with the decision about medicating her own son, she had perspective that many parents do not have. She shares this wisdom, what she chose to do, among other tough decisions and wonderful celebrations along the way.
