Welcome to "Voices for Change 2.0" Co-Host's Rebecca and Joe Lombardo have been happily married for 15 years. At age 19, Rebecca was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and struggles with mental illness daily. In 2013, she survived a suicide attempt. As she recovered, she started a blog detailing her struggles. Eventually that blog was turned into a book called It’s Not Your Journey and is now available on Amazon.com.
This week, VFC 2.0 Welcomes 4 Mental Health Advocates for a roundtable discussion. Join us as we discuss depression, suicide prevention, and stigma with 4 of the most influential mental health advocates out there! We're chatting with Rudy Caseres, Hannah Blum, Kelly Aiello, and Matt Pappas starting at 11am EST until 1pm EST.
Rebecca is now an advocate for mental health as well as a best-selling author and international blogger. Joe is also an advocate for mental health and an accomplished musician. Together they hope to provide people with the point of view of not only the person with mental illness but also the spouse and caregiver.
We Hope you will join us for "Voices for Change 2.0" every Saturday at 11:00 am EST right here on the Left of Str8 Radio Network.
