This Podcast Is Everything I Needed

Love your podcast so much!! I hope you know how much you are appreciated and how much your knowledge helps so many of us around the country !! Thank you for sharing that with us!

SK Suhana ,

Fantastic !

I’m so thrilled the way you’re on the point and bring up some real scenarios that most of us never even noticed, keep it up 🙂

ChristinaMarieCapiga ,

Love this!

Duffs delivery is awesome and the pace he goes at is great. Answers are broken down and thoughtful. I put this on while folding laundry and my girlfriend who I’ve been suggesting go to therapy was hooked. Because of this podcast she’s back in therapy and I’m so so so thankful. No other Mental Heath podcast is as engaging.
