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.
Brent can be found on Twitter: @itsbrentlyles
Thank you again for taking the time to listen, perhaps learn something new, and share. The more people that are educated increases the likelihood of ending the stigma surrounding mental health.
