In this episode of the Just Listen mental health podcast, host Juliette Sivertsen speaks with Samantha Adams about navigating her life through grief, a bipolar diagnosis, depression, drug abuse and psychosis.
Her journey began after watching her father’s health deteriorate due to cancer, and the unresolved grief that followed after his death.
Samantha wants to share her story so others don’t feel so alone in their journey, and show that with the right support, a personal in serious distress can learn to flourish and be well.
Her husband Chris joins Juliette in the latter part of the interview with what he does to ensure he’s being a good support person, while maintaining his own mental health and wellbeing.
