  1. I am an avid #MentalHealthAwareness advocate and spoken word performer, and I love this so much. I travel the country trying to bring that awareness on stages, in classrooms, hospitals, and on my YouTube channel, so I get excited when I see other advocates. 💙❤

  2. 6 years of division and lies from trump and the GQP….and now a epidemic of fear and mental health issues.
    No connection, I'm sure. Right?

  3. I’m noticing the lack of views on this episode. This comes from the medias constant focus on exploiting and causing conflict, societies judgment on other people rather than empathy. Mental illness is not common, response to trauma while being invalidated from the world is frequent and capitalized upon by those in positions of power.
    We have not had a real leader in a very long time. This place need some guidance.

  4. Mental illness is very treatable. My good buddy had bipolar disorder. The meds were stronger …than her educated brain was. Memory problems, then. Heartbreaking story. I helped and ..we organized a team of friends. It got horrible. We volunteered together for several years. My son said he thought it was ..lovely. I hope so.

  5. Whatever happens in your in life. In bad times or in good times u have to remember ur creator. en that is best way to prevent getting anxiety and depressions

  6. Veterans Affairs won't let you see a psychologist in person anymore. Gotta do a video conference call for your psych med refills. Taking the human contact out of the equation to increase suicides. Saves money.

  7. Can see from personal experience young people really developing problems from the constant fear campaign of the past few years, confusing and destructive messages to too-young students from activist teachers and school systems, and the total embrace and acceptance of crime and drug use all over the country. Is any of this really a surprise?? If you ever want to see how bad it really is, attend a local school board meeting or start paying attention to your local government.
