Mental Illness, Mental Health, Mental Wellness, however you refer to it – we're in the midst of a storm. I can't help but think one of the major barriers in itself, is that when we first begin to consider if someone we love is experiencing depression – we start to think of them as quote “ill”. This podcast is intended to share a different perspective, to try to encourage us to look at mental states, not as illnesses, but as experiences that are different, unorthodox, not understood, and challenging. We have the ability to make a big difference in the lives of those around us if we start to see their thoughts as thoughts, and not a sickness or an illness. The content in this episode might be challenging for some, I tackle thoughts of life and death, but I encourage you to listen to the end, because I would love to hear your thoughts, whatever they may be.
