Our Fractured Minds
About This Show
OFM is a raw look at mental illness from people who suffer and how it impacts the lives of people who seem just like you. As we work to change society's understanding of these illnesses, we hope to show that we are defined by more than the illnesses we have to live with. Then, together, we can #EndTheStigma and help others find the comfort, and the help, they need.

OFM S1 E20: Empathy, not Sympathy w/ Phoenix Underwood, Fonder of emp(a)t(h)y
Our Season One season finale is with Phoenix Underwood, founder of the social network, emp(a)t(h)y, a platform for people struggling with grief and mental health. The concept came from his own experiences dealing with the loss of his father, and similar losses suffered from those of his closest friends. We discuss the potential of such a platform to help, and even harm, its users, and how sympathy may be great, but it often doesn't make people feel any less alone.
