    32 - Let's Talk About Depression and Suicide

    32 - Let's Talk About Depression and Suicide

    Suicide is something most folks just don’t bring up... Yet, the problem is palpable. Statistically, someone completes an attempt every 40 seconds.
    The good news is that suicide is 100% preventable and that you don't need to be a professional to help. You just need resources.
    And that brings us to the story of Jonny & Carl - two friends who joined forces to do everything in their power to combat suicide and destigmatize depression and mental health in their community. They teach us how being an agent of healing is easier than you think.

    Growing up gay, Christian, and the son of a church pastor in The South, author and podcast creator BT Harman knew how to suppress his own voice in order to fit in. Yet, at what costs? Anxiety, depression, and deep loneliness seemed to follow him at every turn.

    29 - No One Signs Your Cast

    Treatment for mental health issues rarely receives the same level of community support that a more visible struggle, like major surgery, does. But our friend, Shay, is out to change that.
    A straight male who received treatment for anorexia, Shay experienced push back from some of his closest friends when he made the choice to seek professional help. Yet, his friends were eager to lend sympathy when he fractured an ankle... What gives!?
    We are all about shifting this conversation along with Shay and cannot wait for you to hear more of his story.

Really helpful

So many great episodes with information that’s helpful for many situations in life, as well as knowledge that all of us can use to be more sympathetic as we go through life.

Brave stories, terrible treatment center

I admire everyone brave enough to share their recovery story but ERC is a horrible! ERC is terribly unethical, they treat their patients like it’s a factory, and they have nonstop staff turnover. This podcast is just another example of how ERC exploits patients for marketing purposes just like they do by making patients blog for them on The Mighty. ERC is a big marketing greed machine in nice wrapping. Wolf in sheep’s clothing. Don’t be fooled. Stop supporting this company!
