Episode Info: Episode 000 - Featuring my plans for the show, including interviews with women, mothers, entrpreneurs, artists and "regular" people.   Just because you aren't suffering the same as someone else.

The word mental has a stigma attached to it that can immediately trigger scenes from horror movies, school shootings and epic celebrity breakdowns like Charlie Sheen, Britney Spears, Amanda Bynes or Lindsey Lohan. However, mental health is not having a problem. It’s how you address all of the challenges in your life. It’s how you handle stress, break-ups, rejection, lack of sleep, loss and everything else.
