    Craig Owens on Coping with the "Horror Movie" in His Head

    Craig Owens on Coping with the "Horror Movie" in His Head

    Craig Owens of Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows opens up about his struggle with bipolar disorder, an experience he refers to as "the horror movie in my head," on this special bonus episode of the Going There with Dr. Mike podcast.
    The former Chiodos frontman joins host Dr. Mike Friedman to talk about how he copes with being bipolar by understanding and managing the triggers that put him at risk for manic or depressive episodes. Owens proactively works to manage his triggers with something he calls baskets. As an example, he tries to focus on a positive mantra that he tells himself regularly, not only when he experiences negative thoughts.
    Overall, his kind and non-judgmental approach to understanding what can influence his mood has been an important part of managing his mental health journey.

    Jewel Knows That the Tide of Mental Health Always Comes Back In

    Jewel Knows That the Tide of Mental Health Always Comes Back In

    Jewel joins the Going There podcast to discuss her personal mental health journey and how she learned to except the changing tides of wellness.
    The iconic singer-songwriter shares that the cornerstone of her approach to mental health is what she calls the concept of emotional impermanence. Jewel shares a childhood story where she watched the ocean, and seeing the tide go out, knew that at some point it could come back in. She used this as a metaphor and inspiration to break free of the hopeless she felt when dealing with anxiousness and depression. Jewel talks about "buckling herself in" to try and weather the difficult times, becoming curious about what she can learn from her emotions and behaviors rather than just trying to avoid or suppress her experience.

    Halestorm's Lzzy Hale on How Mental Health Monsters Feed on Each Other

    Halestorm's Lzzy Hale on How Mental Health Monsters Feed on Each Other

    Lzzy Hale of Halestorm discusses how her fame doesn't preclude her from having mental health issues on the Going There with Dr. Mike podcast.
    The Grammy Award-winning hard rocker discusses how "all the monsters feed on each other," meaning that each mental health issue can exacerbate the other. She explains the struggles she's had with depression and panic, including the guilt she often feels from struggling even though she in so many ways has a wonderful and successful life.
    Ultimately, one of the key messages Hale wants to convey is that our mental health struggles can feel like such a burden to us that we assume everyone else will also see it the same way; but what's important to remember is that the right people are the ones who do not make us feel like burdens. They're the ones who welcome the opportunity to help us when we are struggling because they understand that this is part of a strong and healthy relationship.

    LAUV Finds the Light on His Mental Health Journey

    LAUV Finds the Light on His Mental Health Journey

    Electropop artist LAUV joins Dr. Mike Friedman on the Going There podcast to discuss how he uses the concept of “finding the light” to improve his mental health and emotional well-being.
    The How I'm Feeling singer talks about how sometimes as we build our life, we forget to take the time to check in with ourselves to see how we are feeling. The more we bypass that process of checking in with ourselves, the more we become afraid of stillness. LAUV explains that what often starts as a health cycle in which we're building a fulfilling life can become a grind in which we constantly push ourselves harder and harder -- and often too hard.

    Taylor Bennett's Uplifting Individuality

    Taylor Bennett's Uplifting Individuality

    Musician, rapper, entrepreneur, and all around positive guy Taylor Bennett brings his "be yourself" mentality to the Going There with Dr. Mike podcast.
    The Chicago native discusses how "uplifting individuality" is his guiding philosophy in his mental health and well-being journey. Bennett explains that in order to discover our best self, we must be able to focus on how we as individuals can constantly grow and develop. That allows us to figure out what we want in the world and how to attain optimal mental, physical, and social health.
    The Be Yourself entrepreneur talks about how he copes with the challenges of pursuing a state of uplifting individuality. That includes exploring his feelings through his music and having his own independent label so he can pursue his authentic creative vision, eating healthy and exercising, and learning when he should stay focused and when to disconnect in order to understand how to cope with a difficult emotional situation. The key is to realize that the trial and error that we often have to go through is not a sign that we are failing, but rather a sign that we are learning and growing.

    Pom Pom Squad's Mia Berrin's Galaxy Brain

    Pom Pom Squad's Mia Berrin's Galaxy Brain

    Mia Berrin -- leader of former Artists of the Month Pom Pom Squad -- joins the Going There podcast to discuss the bias that "mental health" means always feeling and acting happy, calm, and confident.
    The world would have us believe that being "normal" involves continuous positive and optimistic thinking, and being accepted or popular socially. If we don't behave this way, our mental health and well-being can be questioned. This bias can create a stigma whereby people are unduly judged or criticized. Berrin explains that she took on these societal standards by evoking the image of a cheerleader in her music persona.
    She discusses how she copes with not living up to societal standards in part by embracing her own "Galaxy Brain." The term can refer to someone who rejects conventional norms and understanding, instead looking at the bigger pictures of issues and digging until they uncover how they really feel and what they want to do. Though the phrase is often meant as an insult -- like someone is making too much of an issue -- the Pom Pom Squad singer talks about how her Galaxy Brain has helped create a pathway to mental health, not an obstacle. After all, we can't cope by invalidating our feelings; we must embrace our Galaxy Mind and accept that our feelings gave value first.
