We speak with professionals, as well as those in the trenches...people who struggle with anxiety and depression and other mental health issues. And we break it down as simply as possible. Mental health is complicated... but I've learned that for some, living with it doesn't have to be. And a basic understanding doesn't have to be either. This is Simple Mental Health.

Great if you love someone with anxiety

I’m listening because my daughters have anxiety and this podcast gives me insight into their struggles and helps me know what to say, when not to speak, and definitely helps with empathy for those of us who do not struggle with anxiety disorder ourselves.

Simply Amazing
