    EP 138 - Gender Issues In Mental Health and Anxiety Recovery w/ Dr. Bridget Cooper

    EP 138 - Gender Issues In Mental Health and Anxiety Recovery w/ Dr. Bridget Cooper

    Today Dr. Bridget Cooper (Dr. B) and I talk about gender issues in mental health and anxiety recovery.  There are clearly differences between men and women and how we talk about mental health, think about mental health, and approach solving mental health problems like the anxiety disorders we're talking about all the time.

    The way we define our roles as men and women and the way we are socialized into those roles make a difference in the way men and women approach mental health and emotional issues.  Given that in the end we are all humans with the same emotional and mental health needs and problems, we would do well to learn lessons on how to break down some of the gender based issues that can hold us back in recovery.

    EP 137 - Postpartum OCD, Anxiety, and Mental Health Issues w/ Jenna Overbaugh

    EP 137 - Postpartum OCD, Anxiety, and Mental Health Issues w/ Jenna Overbaugh

    Therapists and counselors also struggle with mental health. Licensed mental health professional Jenna Overbaugh treats anxiety disorders for a living, but after the birth of her son she struggled with postpartum anxiety, depression and OCD.

    For full show notes on this episode, visit theanxioustruth.com/137

    Jenna always assumed that her training and profession would have her well prepared to handle anxiety and depression issues in own life. After a traumatic delivery experience, Jenna began to experience intrusive thoughts centered on accidentally harming her newborn. The thoughts expanded and against her own professional advice, Jenna found herself unwittingly engaging in the avoidance and safety behaviors that she logically knew fuel the problem.

    Jenna’s experience taught her that there is giant hole in our society where the basics of mental health for new mothers should be. Without having the benefit of the knowledge Jenna has, the average new mom is totally lost and terrified when confronted with the common mental health struggles that can pop up after childbirth. There is plenty of information about the nuts and bolts of delivery and caring for a newborn but virtually no discussion of even basic postpartum mental health concepts.

    EP 136 - Orthorexia, "Proper" Eating, Diet, Fitness and Anxiety Issues w/Jenna Overbaugh

    EP 136 - Orthorexia, "Proper" Eating, Diet, Fitness and Anxiety Issues w/Jenna Overbaugh

    There is a HUGE amount of discussion about "treating" anxiety problems with diet and exercise.  In some cases, diet and exercise can actually DRIVE anxiety issues and can even present obstacles to recovery.  In this podcast episode I was joined by therapist and personal trainer Jenna Overbaugh to discuss orthorexia, obsessive focus on exercise and fitness, and the problems associated with these things.

    EP 134 - Stages of Anxiety Recovery

    EP 134 - Stages of Anxiety Recovery

    When you interact with the number anxiety disorders that I do, you have the opportunity to see patterns emerge in a crowd.  Over years of doing this thing I do, and interacting with the large number of people that I have, I can see that when it comes to recovery from an anxiety disorder, there are clear "stages" of recovery that most people progress through.  None of these are absolutely set in stone, but the odds are high that you will identify with one of these stages.
