Positive psychiatry, believe it or not, is more than just rainbows and unicorns! It’s backed up by our good friend, science.

Dr. Samantha Boardman is a clinical instructor in psychiatry, an attending psychiatrist at Weill Cornell Medical College, and the author of Everyday Vitality: Turning Stress Into Strength. Her website, Positive Prescription, focuses on sharing practical strategies that can enhance your life and build resilience – without the positive fluff. She has a skill for sharing this information in a way that’s uplifting rather than shaming – something that so many people get wrong. We talk about microstressors, how they accumulate, and how to remain strong in the face of them.


Dr. Samantha Boardman talks about...

  • How she began focusing on positive psychiatry
  • Studying mental health instead of illness
  • The compounding effect of small, daily stressors
  • Three ways to build vitality
  • Putting words to your emotions
  • The power of uncertainty
  • Post-traumatic growth
  • Building resilience in everyday life
  • The perfectionism problem
