Five on Friday 2019

Dear Readers
 
Another year of musings on mental health. We have covered a lot of ground. From grief to burnout to the benefits of boredom. From psilocybin to what the American Founding Fathers knew about mental illness to eating disorders and trauma. Thank you for reading Five on Friday. Thank you for sharing your favorite posts with others. Thank you for writing to me with comments on what I have written and topics I might consider for another week.
 
Here is 2019 in review. Please click on the titles to read posts you may have missed or to read once again posts you especially enjoyed.
