Mastering The Mind: A Mental Health Deep Dive

For too long, talking about mental health has been a social taboo.

Shame prevents confronting our struggles. The pressure of our daily lives exacerbates the problem. Compound that with society’s lack of mental health education and you create an epidemic of mental health disorders ranging from chronic stress and anxiety to loneliness and depression. PTSD. And of course, suicide.

The solution to these problems is complicated. But it always begins with talking about them.

Today we do just that. Introducing a masterclass on all things mental health, my second in a new ongoing series of compilation-based deep dives.

The conversations excerpted for this episode feature some of the best, most inspiring exchanges I’ve had on the topic of mental health, with practical takeaways and bite-size chunks of advice that you can apply in your life today.

The full episodes for guests featured in this episode can be enjoyed here:

Special thanks to new team member Dan Drakefor his help crafting this very special episode.

Final Note: This conversation traverses difficult emotional terrain. If you are struggling, please raise your hand and reach out for help. For a catalog of resources, you can visit the National Alliance on Mental Illness and if you are experiencing suicidal ideation, know you’re not alone. I encourage you to call the Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1(800) 273 – TALK.

I sincerely hope you find this experiment helpful, instructive, and inspiring.
