The Fight Squad consists of the sassy duo, Mylin Brooks-Stoddard and Shea Scott Edwards. Both having battled with mental illness, through counseling, medication and their faith in God, they have won the fight and teamed up to knock out the stigma associated with mental illness. With candor and a little bit of humor, they are determined to be as real and vulnerable about their experiences so that listeners can be encouraged and reminded that they are not alone and there is help and healing ahead. With one punch at a time, they hope to convince you that there is no shame in this game, and you too can be victorious!

Life changing podcast!
Incredible source of community for Christian ladies and the stigma faced with mental health. I think it’s so important that we don’t fall into the trap of thinking reaching out for help means our faith is week. That’s definitely not the case! I look so forward to new episodes! Love Mylin and Shea’s perspective and their hearts for others. ♥️♥️
