Mental health is something I’m connected to personally – I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (with a healthy smidge of social anxiety) when I was about 18. Mental health and addiction issues also run throughout my family. I’ll touch more on that in a moment.

There are already some wonderful podcasts out there about mental health, many of which focus on specific issues or have unique styles. I am not an expert in mental health, have no training in the field, and this show isn’t meant to cure or heal anyone, or replace the guidance of a physician, treatment, or a therapeutic environment. This is an opportunity for me to be somewhat selfish, in fact, and look into issues related to mental health that I find interesting, in the hopes that maybe I’ll learn a little bit, discover new tools, and be an enjoyable, cathartic experience for me. I can only hope that it will be beneficial to you, too, as I explore this vast subject through interviews.

My plan is to have a new episode every week, published to EverydayFray.Libsyn.com and pushed out to multiple platforms from there. I have also created social media channels: Everyday Fray Podcast on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. If you want a more direct connection, you can email me at everydayfraypodcast@gmail.com. I look forward to getting feedback, hearing your stories, and exploring new ideas for interviews with you.

This show will be interview-based, but before I start airing those interviews, I want to share my story, and maybe give you insight into why this project is important to me.
