I wrote the best selling books Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression and Hardcore Self Help: F**K Anxiety. Those are available at http://hardcoreselfhelp.com

Customer ReviewsSee All
Very rare to find a podcast like this!
This podcast gives actionable tips on how to feel good and better your mental health. It's not just interview after interview. Instead, it's a bit of a deep dive into why we act a certain way and what we can do to change that. Of course this never replaces seeing a doctor but if you're a little anxious, try listening to this podcast. 5 stars!
