Mind Time With Madison
It was such an honour to speak with Denise Pope on MTWM this week. Denise has dedicated her life to literally challenging success (you can find her resources and programs for students and schools at www.challengesuccess.org). It was so amazing to get to ask her some burning questions about her personal mental health journey from growing up in the 80s and how attitudes around mental health and stigma around mental illness have changed, and in some cases gotten worse and what we can do about it! We especially loved and appreciated her advice on how we can better support each other as peers at every stage and phase of life. Check out the full interview on iTunes Podcasts, Spotify and Youtube (audio and video recorded)!
