The Holiday season can be tough for many people, but especially difficult for individuals and family with mental illness. So many factors can cause misunderstandings and confusion outside even physical symptoms.
Margaret and I talk about two perspectives of parent and child on how to support and work through some common situations faced by families during the holidays.
Take away some tips on how to make the Christmas season more of a supportive, empathetic and caring environment for the whole family.
Dr. David Hardy is the Assistant Director of Operations at Apex Brain Centers and a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist. Since our show focuses on all aspects of Behavioral Health it was important to bring on a guest that could share their professional expertise in regards to brain functioning and how this affects mental health. We also veer into how our addiction to technology – Facebook, cell phones, and social media in general affects our brain chemistry and emotional well-being.

Talking to an incredible advocate and peer about the effects of early trauma and how it can have a mental impact. Izzy talks to us about some hard facts regarding transitioning out of state institutes and how difficult it can be for individuals. She shares with us her role in her new job as a peer helping individuals with that transition.
She also shares her personal journey of trauma induced anxiety and depression from experiences at an early age. We follow her story through her teens and into her 20's where she is now in a position of recovery and giving back to people in need.
Izzy is incredibly knowledgable and I feel lucky to call her my friend and colleague!

Join me as I talk to best friend, colleague, technician, and in his words 'the most mentally stable person you know' about Seasonal Affective Disorder and all of the crazy things we have learned in the last couple years about mental illness!!
No agenda, but guaranteed fun!
There will be laughs. There will be stories. There will be making fun of Chrissie's hair.
Today, Ethan Smith--Spokesperson for the International OCD Foundation and Chrissie talk about hot topics associated with mental health, stigma, and our own crazy lives!
How do you become a mental health advocate? How do you break down stigma surrounding mental illness? How do you start to heal, love, and accept yourself with a mental illness?
SHARE YOUR STORY!
Mental illness makes us feel SO alone sometimes. What you don't know is that hundreds of thousands of people are feeling the same way that you do with some of the same symptoms! There is so much healing and power in connecting with individuals who have experienced mental illness. You don't ever have to be or feel alone with your experience.
Also, you don't have to have a mental illness to be an advocate! Do you support better care for mental health? Do you have empathy and compassion for the topic of mental health? Speak up and let people know you support others in their mental illness challenges and you will be an advocate as well!
Ro Vitale and Chrissie Hodges, both advocates for mental health share their experiences of how powerful sharing their personal stories changed their lives and others.
Thank you for the support and courage to share your own journey!
