Trigger Warning: In this episode, we discuss sensitive mental health topics.

As moms and as women, our mental health is incredibly important, and we should be having conversations about it. The problem is, many of us feel ashamed by the stigmas attached to the subject, and as a result, those conversations aren’t happening. 

How can we banish those feelings of shame for good, so we can talk about our experiences with others and get the help we need, when we need it? How can we start giving ourselves permission to open up so we don’t need to suffer in silence? 

In this episode, author of A Mouthful of Air and director of the film based on the novel, Amy Koppelman shares how to allow ourselves to feel true joy again.

“Fight for the person who isn’t surrounded by psychologists.”

-Amy Koppelman
