About This Episode
On today’s Tuesday People podcast, in observation of World Mental Health day, we talk about the importance of erasing the stigma surrounding mental illness. Producer Lisa talks about a disorder she has dealt with since childhood, and host Mitch Albom shares a fear of his with our listeners. Whether you experience anxiety, spend endless days cycling through OCD rituals – or if you, or a loved one, suffer from a serious mental illness, it’s important to talk about it. Talk with family, talk with friends, talk to your doctor. Mental health is HEALTH. And the you who you are, inside and out, is nothing to be ashamed of.
Thankfully I do not have depression. I have in the past but not for too long. I do not suffer from anxiety either. Very happy about that. I do not have OCD either. You are right there are people that I know that have those issues. So many young people today are depressed and on medication. I do not understand why so many. We have been in a pandemic but we make progress and move forward on that. Most kids today have everything under the sun but yet they are depressed. The mood from people today is that they are so moody and put out over Covid. The littlest things get them riled up. It is too bad. I keep positive through everything in the long run.
