This is a (hopefully) brief livestream to let you know my thoughts and observations about the mental health aspects of the Johnny Depp / Amber Heard Trial for this week.
This will include the testimonies of Dr. Dawn Hughes and Amber Heard.
My main objective is to give you some analysis on Dr. Hughes' presentation as an expert witness for the defense (Amber Heard). I will also offer some tips, tools and techniques for you to use for self-care if you have been emotionally affected by any of Amber Heard's testimony.
