Kim Rosenthal, MD
Author and psychiatrist
Your vision is blocked, you can’t move, can’t breathe… but that isn’t life. That’s mental illness. That’s depression, bipolar, panic, trauma, and substance abuse. I know. That’s why I wrote this website… to bring hope and the occasional chuckle to your world. There’s misery, yes, but there are a lot of people overcoming that misery. This is more than survival. This is about loving life.
Welcome to kimrosenthalmd.com, a place where you win the lottery at least once/year and an historian follows you around recording what you do right. Kimrosenthalmd.com features over 120+ mental health articles. We’re a mental health website after all, officially the Mental Health and You! blog. You’ll also find the unexpected: humor, puzzles, mazes, coloring pages, and lots of bad artwork. We’re home to the upcoming Wacky and Wonderful Recovery Workbook (WW), a self-help book for people in addiction recovery. And we’re introducing the latest addition… the WW Recovery Booklet Store is now open!
Thanks for visiting — and don’t move. Your lottery ticket and personal historian are on their way.

About the Author
When not writing, I practice life as a physician. I’m a psychiatrist, which gives me the chance to live vicariously through other people’s eyes, hear lots of stories, live lots of experiences — it’s an incredible honor to be part of that. It’s humbling.
I’m board-certified and have licenses in Hawaii, Maine, and North Carolina. I work at a state psychiatric hospital in North Carolina. Most of my patients are severely mentally ill and some criminally insane. Despite the tragedies that surround me, I know there’s hope for everyone, that life can be spectacular no matter who or where you are.
I’ve been practicing medicine for almost 20 years and wouldn’t trade it for the world. For more information, check out my About page.
