The education and training of future mental health providers is essential in improving the identification, diagnosis, and treatment of people with tics and Tourette Disorder. In this program, graduate students in psychology, social work, and mental health counseling are invited to learn about the etiology, presentation, and symptoms of Tourette Disorder, and the associated emotional, behavioral, and learning challenges.
I am a nurse. I also have Tourette Syndrome. During the Coronavirus pandemic it’s been challenging to manage the two. I wish I could say that it was the same as every other day, but the reality is my work and tics are impacted by the coronavirus and my tics impact my work. Whether I’m about home or at work, I have unsettling anxiety about what’s going to happen in the coming days and weeks.
