    Becca Tilley joins Mal this week to discuss her relationship with "Lesbian Jesus" Hayley Kiyoko - how it started, the conversations that led to keeping it private for years (but don't worry, Taylor Swift knew the whole time), and the challenges that came with being two public figures in a private relationship.

    28. LGBTQ Mental Health & Borderline Personality Disorder with Jordan Werner, AMFT

    28. LGBTQ Mental Health & Borderline Personality Disorder with Jordan Werner, AMFT

    In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we bring you a conversation centered around queer mental health and borderline personality disorder, with Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, Jordan Werner. Jordan discusses the complexities of queer mental health and the patterns she sees in her LGBT-identifying clients: anxiety, shame, and identity issues.
    Jordan discusses the employment of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) in her practice: a modality developed for the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Jordan explains the symptoms of BPD, common traits to look out for, and the challenges of diagnosing personality disorders. The discussion also covers the intersectionality of mental health and marginalized communities, the perception of BPD as a patriarchal diagnosis, and the potential for recovery through therapy. Lastly, Jordan teaches us TIPP Skills for when we feel dysregulated and want to calm ourselves down.

Awesome podcast

Wish this podcast was around when I was coming out in my 30s. Made it Out covers topics both big and small with guests that are entertaining and informative. It truly feels like you’re hanging out with some of your besties having a gay old time.

I love this podcast

Found this podcast and binged the whole thing in a week! Can’t wait for more episodes to drop. This podcast has been such an incredible resource to me as I navigate my sexuality, and it’s also just incredibly entertaining to listen to!

It’s giving 10’s!

I look forward to new episodes every Tuesday! This podcast has helped me navigate my queerness in so many ways as a cool kid growing up in the 90’s! Thank you for creating a podcast for lesbians by lesbians and making us feel SEEN! ❤️
