Finding Strength in Your Struggle
November 20, 2019
Hosted by Alise Cortez, PhD
Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health diagnoses in the US, followed by substance abuse disorder. This is due in part to our tendency as an individualistic society to assume alone more day-to-day burdens than our collectivist society brethren who rely on a broader community to handle the pressures of daily life. This conversation encourages us to become enlightened as to how the trials and tribulations of everyday life can impact our mental and spiritual health. And in the most helpful and optimistic way, it reminds us that we should embrace how the miracle in us can become a powerful energy to offset the debilitating affects of what can otherwise emerge as anxiety and mental or spiritual depression.
