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.

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.

Brent suffers from mental health issues and openly shares them in order to better connect with his clients.

July 25, 2019

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.
