Mental Health Education

I’m studying at UNR in Reno, NV for my MSW and this podcast is perfect. Pursuing my LCSW, this podcast is perfect. It isn’t fabricated and packed with quality information.

Amazing!

Wonderful mental health pod that is both educational and a great listen!

EpikDJ ,

Emotions are temporary

I Learned so much from listening to Jake about Izzard’s View on emotions. It’s ok to feel, but it only lasts less than 10 seconds. Then your thoughts, which you control, takes over. My life and family are better from listening to this and I recommend this podcast to EVERYONE!
