Hi, and welcome to another episode of Mental Health Raw and Open. On today's show, we chat with survivor and therapist Brent Lyles. Brent suffers from mental health issues and openly shares them in order to better connect with his clients. Although he still deals with his diagnoses, he has turned his obstacles around, and now helps others not to suffer as he did. It was a great conversation with Brent, and I look forward to our next chat.

Hi and thank you for tuning in to another episode of Mental Health Raw and Open. On today's show, we will be chatting with US Veteran, Author and Advocate Betsy Ross.
Betsy's books Fight, and To Fight Again are raising awareness to the struggle that Veterans face daily when trying to come back from war and resume life in society. Her advocacy has helped many to not only talk about their struggles, but to reach out for help as well. Her book is well worth the read.
Betsy's books can be found at:

Hey, welcome back and thank you for listening, and for your support. On today's show we will chat with a close friend of mine Dennis Ellis. Dennis and I had spoken for quite a while on social media, and then last year, I was lucky enough to be able to connect with him in person. We are both afflicted with BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder), and have many of the same symptoms and thought processes. If you have BPD, or know someone with BPD, please have a listen, and if you learn something new, please pass it on. BPD is at the top of the list of mental health issues that sadly end by suicide, and has an enormous stigma attached to it.
Thank you so much for your time, your willingness to learn and try to understand something new.
Be well and stay strong.
