So, this is a solo podcast, and without a doubt the hardest one I have ever had to do. It is a memorial tribute to my dear friend, Penny Hollick. She was one of the strongest, bravest, and beautiful souls that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. She lost her fight to cancer Monday, Feb 24, 2020. A day that I will never forget.
I did this podcast so I could share a bit of my friend with you all, and would really appreciate you having a listen. It is not too long.
Thank you, and until next time, take care and be well.

Hi and welcome to another episode of Mental Health Raw and Open. On today's show, we will chat with a very close friend, Jay (Superior) Doodnauth. Jay and I met at the premiere of his short MH film called Perspective. It is incredibly poignant and I would recommend watching it if you have the opportunity. I believe Jay has a link posted to it on his Instagram.
On top of being a film producer and director, Jay is a creative genius and an incredibly good musician. He also spends a lot of time supporting and speaking about Mental Health, and all round, is just a fantastic human being.
Please take some time to have a listen.
You can find Jay at: https://www.instagram.com/thinksuperior https://www/instagram.com/perspectivetheshortfilm
or on Facebook @jaysuperior
or on Soundcloud soundcloud.com/jdsuperior
Thank you for taking the time to listen. It means a lot to me, to be able to have an avenue besides writing to share stories, and hopefully help to lessen stigma. Until next time, take care and be well.
If you enjoy my podcast or websites or blog, please consider making a small donation as there are out of pocket expenses and I am on a very limited income. Thank you.

It is World Suicide Prevention Day today, so I wanted to drop a short episode on awareness. Suicide rates have been increasing exponentially with no ending in sight. I would really appreciate if you could give this a listen, then maybe send it to a friend to listen and so on.
Suicide, the word is noticed, but often the actions leading up to it are not. Check on your friends and family. Ask the question directly..."are you having suicidal thoughts", it IS NOT going to put an idea in their head, however, it may, one day, save a life.
Stay strong and be well my friends, and thank you so much, as always, for your time.

Sarah deals with depression and anxiety, and still manages her job as the editor in chief for the mental health section of The Mighty, which is an enormous site online, focusing on both mental and physical health. The stories are written by people from around the world who want to share their journey in writing. If you haven't had a look, please do so. We hope you enjoy the show.

Hi, and thanks for listening. In this episode, I am doing a brief 20 minute introduction to the podcast, and to myself. I will do random short episodes talking about my Mental Health issues. I will be having open and candid discussions with my guests, which include sufferers, advocates, therapists, authors, life coaches, and many more.
I really appreciate you spending a bit of your time with me.
Take care and be well.
