When we asked Dr. Brielle Cartwright what inspired her to go into medicine, she said the answer was simple: "Wanting to advocate for mental health patients who cannot advocate for themselves." After witnessing loved ones battle with mental illness and addiction, Dr. Cartwright decided to use those experiences to work towards changing the system and reshaping the cultural idea that psychiatric healthcare is unnecessary or shameful. Now, as a Psychiatrist, she works hard to help her patients maintain their mental and emotional stability and provide an underserved population with the care they deserve.
