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.
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!
It's hard enough having romantic relationships WITHOUT a mental illness!? Ever wonder what it is like to try to have a 'normal' relationship while living with a monstrous disorder in your brain? Tim Blue and I will talk about some of the difficulties as well as some good advice on how to navigate relationships with mental illness (hopefully successfully!!)
Jennifer Hill from the Colorado Mental Wellness Network will also be joining to talk about their services here in Colorado as well as their upcoming fundraiser!
Pierson is officially the youngest guest ever appearing on my show! I cannot imagine the lives he is going to change as he spreads advocacy and awareness so early in his life and career. I have met many brave people on this show, but Pierson by far exceeds the courage and passion for wanting to eliminating the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Please join me as I talk to Pierson and his mom about his life with OCD and Tourette's Syndrome, how he stays motivated, and what his plans are for future advocacy.
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!
Arguably one of the most misunderstood and stigmatized mental illnesses, Roopa Grewal educates us on living with Borderline Personality Disorder.
Admittedly, I believed the negative hype about Borderline Personality Disorder as individuals with aggrandized and emotional drama-seekers...until I actually met people who suffer with the disorder. Not only are people with BPD incredible human beings, but they are some of the most resilient individuals I have come in contact with. I cannot imagine what it must be like to not only struggle with the debilitating symptoms of BPD but to also endure the crippling stigma surrounding the diagnosis.
It's time to take a better and more positive look at Borderline Personality Disorder. It's time to start treating individuals with this disorder without stigma or judgment. Roopa Grewal is an example of what it is going to take to change this perception. She proudly speaks out about her story and the reality of Borderline Personality Disorder.
Tune in to hear my interview with her and to learn more about the highly stigmatized diagnosis that is Borderline Personality Disorder.
As part of celebrating the collaboration of advocacy on www.overcomingocd.net with Shannon Shy and Lyndsee Hargett, we are hosting a call in show answering questions and sharing stories about OCD and being OCD advocates!
Three types of OCD, three different experiences, three different advocacy paths---it is so great to know we are not alone!
Jody Gamel has an incredible story of hitting rock bottom as a result of his illness of Bipolar and rising to the top into a life that he never could imagine could be so fulfilling.
Jody had the 'normal, desirable' all American life with a successful Corporate job, family, and activities. His battle with bipolar took a devestating turn and he bottomed out. He thought that everything good was over for him, until he walked into a Respite center in Georgia run by peers.
Mental illness is rough on relationships of any kind, especially on couples. “The stress level often stretches into a crisis mode, in which managing the illness becomes, for all intents and purposes, the sole function of the relationship.”
“The mental illness has a way of directing the functionality and dynamic of the relationship, rather than the individuals involved. Nevertheless we have to remember that the people involved in the relationship have the ultimate control.
Join me, MSKeepItMoving and my special cohost, Michael “QuietStorm” Walton as we discuss the strain Mental Illness can put on your relationships. Get some tips on how you can maintain a healthy relationship rather than being consumed and controlled by Mental Illness.

An unexpected turn in our conversation has co-host, Tim Blue and myself talking about the challenges of personal stigma that we face when we are diagnosed with a mental illness.

Eating Disorders are often stigmatized and even 'envied' by individuals who do not understand the severity and misery they cause the sufferer.
