When you're stuck in your sad/anxious/grieving bubble, how do you get out of it? Lately for me, it's helped to talk to, listen to, or read something from someone who really gets what I'm going through. And listening to today's episode did that for me - because Tyler Feder gets it ALL - losing your mom, being anxious, battling ADHD, and more. Tyler is an artist whose work explores big feelings, feminism, and pop culture. I was introduced to her work from one of my mom’s friends last year, who was so sweet and sent me this book after my mom died. It’s called Dancing at the Pity Party - it’s a graphic memoir about Tyler’s mom - her life, her death, and Tyler's grief. It’s definitely different from every other grief book I’ve read. But in a really cool way - because yeah, it’s sad, but it’s also somehow fun, because there’s all these drawings and sweet memories, and reading it just felt really relatable.If you are struggling with anything - a mental illness, the loss of a loved one, trauma, whatever it is - I think finding someone to talk to or listen to or read their book, from someone who’s gone through something similar, can be really helpful.So I LOVED talking to Tyler about her art, her grief, her mom, and body positivity.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

Do you love trying different things for your mental health and figuring out which ones work? And then sticking with them, but also letting yourself switch it up when the routine isn't serving you anymore (and NOT beating yourself up about it if you miss a day/week/whatever!)? This week's guest is all about that.X. Ari is an alt-pop singer, writer, and mental health advocate, who’s life motto is all about turning “Pain Into Power.” She does that through her music, and by sharing her own struggles with mental health online and in-person, speaking at schools and other events. She’s so open about everything from anxiety to psychosis, and what self care activities help her get through it all. She even launched her own non-profit, called WisdoMania Foundation, that offers Songwriting for Wellness workshops to schools and communities.And for Mental Health Awareness Month - which is MAY, aka right NOW when this episode comes out - X. Ari is celebrating by putting on a whole festival dedicated to mental health, called WisdoMania Fest. It’s virtual, so you can tune in from home on May 15th and 16th, and try a huge variety of different self care activities, like meditation, yoga, art therapy, songwriting for healing and journaling. Want to join the festival (I'll be there!)?

If you want to skip the intro and get straight to the meditation, skip to 7 minutes into this episode.This is the 5th edition of Mindfully Together, a series of meditations we'll doing here on Mentally Together. Get comfy and listen up, and we hope it provides a few minutes of calm and relaxation in your day.Today I will lead you through a 15-minute loving kindness meditation, where we will be sending out loving kindness to all living beings (yes, yourself included). It sounds really cheesy, but for me, this type of meditation has really helped me feel more compassion for myself and others. I mean, if you think about everything you do in life, everything you go through, everything you help other people with, can you think of anything that being a little more loving and kind DOESN'T make better?So get comfy (like, actually comfy!) and enjoy this meditation.Read more about the benefits of loving kindness meditation here.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

Lisa Cazes and Alizée Falque are two friends who bonded over their mental health struggles. Now, they’re using those struggles as inspiration for a short film challenging misconceptions about bipolar disorder and breaking down the stigmas around it. It’s called Up and Down. Lisa is the writer, director, and producer, and Alizée  is the lead actor and associate producer.This is part 2 of our conversation - in this episode, we talk about their experiences with medication when it comes to their mental health, what led to Lisa (and her mom) being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and how the pandemic led to Alizée finally being diagnosed with ADHD.This episode DOES discuss some  serious topics, including addiction and suicide. If you or anyone you know is experiencing some of those feelings, please reach out to a professional for help. You can always reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. And please take care of yourself, and only listen to this episode if and when you are ready.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

Lisa is the writer, director, and producer, and Alizée  is the lead actor and associate producer. Lisa was diagnosed with bipolar disorder herself in 2018, and grew up helping support her bipolar mom as well. And Alizée has ADHD and social anxiety, both of which I relate to a LOT.So I loved talking to them both about how they connected as friends because of their mental health struggles, how they’ve learned to help each other through the tough moments, and what they hope to share about bipolar disorder in their upcoming short film.(Loved talking to them SO much that this is part 1 of 2 - hear more from Lisa and Alizée next week!)Donate to their film's Indiegogo campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/up-and-down-short-filmYou can see behind-the-scenes of the film on social media from Alizée, Lisa, and Up and Down film.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

Why do I still keep talking about my grief on the pod? Because it's still something I'm dealing with and figuring out every day, and I know I'm not alone in that. So here's what happened when I went across the world to China to cover the Olympics, and hit the 6-month mark since Mom died while I was there. If you've ever felt sad... maybe you can relate.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

When it comes to our mental health, there are SO many things we can try to get ourselves feeling better. Do the same things work for everyone? Is something that helps one person guaranteed to help you too? Is anything ever guaranteed to help? No... But that doesn't mean we can't try. So we looked back at every episode from 2021, and pulled out one super useful nugget from each smart guest. It's basically the SparkNotes version of mental health tips...! This is part 2 - hear 15 more tips in part 1, last week's episode!You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

It's a new year - but no, you do not have to be a new you. However, if you're listening to this podcast, there's a good chance you want your brain to feel a little better this year.

Have you ever been to  support group? I hadn't, until a couple of months ago - I was going down a grief rabbit hole on the internet, just looking for advice and other people to relate to and who knows what… but I came across a local bereavement support group for people who have experienced the same type of loss that I have with my mom. So I decided, what the heck, let’s try this… I've only been to two so far (it's monthly), but it's definitely been helpful to me.Brennan Wood is the executive director of Dougy Center, the National Grief Center for Children & Families. They provide support in a safe place where children, teens, young adults, and families who are grieving can share their experiences before and after a death. Brennan is also the secretary of the Board of Directors of the National Alliance for Grieving Children. And, she was once a grieving child herself. But I’ll let her tell you more about that.She’s also an author of a book coming out in January, called A Kids Book About Grief.So I loved talking to Brennan about how she started talking about her grief, how we can help kids talk about theirs, and how there really is no “right” way to grieve.Pre-order Brennan's new book, A Kids Book About Grief: https://bit.ly/kidsbookgriefCheck out Dougy Center: dougy.orgBooks recommended by Mentally Together guests: https://bookshop.org/lists/mentally-togetherMentally Together is a creation from Cassidy Quinn in collaboration with Coba.fm.Zoom+Care ZoomCare offers same-day doctor visits—that you can book online or from their app. Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/cassidyquinn)
We're all constantly working on ourselves and our brains, right? That is definitly true for Malick Mercier. On his social media, you'll see him talk about mental health, aviation - one of his goals is to become a pilot one day - and all the other things he’s manifesting for himself in his life. He calls himself "Gen Z’s journalist," and he's constantly putting himself out there and is using his voice for good! So I loved talking to Malick about OCD and exposure therapy in the middle of a frickin’ pandemic, how to look for and see love in the world, and how Gen-Z might be the best generation so far at asking for help.PS we recorded this episode back in June - it's all still relevant today, but just FYI in case you notice Malick mentioning, "it's getting warmer out!" 🤣You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

Happy Thanksgiving, to those who celebrate! But whether you're celebrating or not, I think we can all use a little extra gratitude. This is the 4th edition of Mindfully Together, a series of meditations we'll doing here on Mentally Together. Get comfy and listen up, and we hope it provides a few minutes of calm and relaxation in your day.Today I will lead you through a 10-minute gratitude meditation, where we will be checking in with our breath and tuning into the gratitude in our lives. It sounds cheesy, but for me, remembering that I have things to be grateful for does sometimes help me through the sad days (I also totally recognize that there are times this can NOT help at all...). Another thing that's really been helping me lately is just checking into, "hey, how am I actually feeling right now?" And meditating helps me be able to do that. It's helpful, even when how I'm "actually feeling" is depressed, anxious, or all of the above... So get comfy (you don't even have to sit still) and enjoy this meditation.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

Hi friends! Apparently you all want to keep talking about sad things... because I asked you if you'd rather have an interview episode this week or another episode about my grief... and you picked GRIEF! If you're feeling sad or you've ever felt sad or you know anyone who's sad... maybe you can relate. In this episode, I talk about the various stages of grief I'm experiencing after the loss of my mom, what's helping me right now, what I'm struggling with, and I answer some of your questions about grief. I know this is all sad stuff to be talking about, but it definitely helps me to talk about it outloud, so I hope it can help some of you too.The grief book I mention in this episode is It's OK that you're Not OK by Megan Devine - find that and other books recommended by MT guests here: https://bookshop.org/lists/mentally-together/You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

Michelle Hammer is an activist, who makes videos and other content about her experience living with schizophrenia. Because, turns out, most of us don’t really know much about what schizophrenia actually is. She spends her time passionately fighting stigma, and even created a clothing brand to do just that - it’s called Schizophrenic.NYC, and its designs are intended to start conversations about mental health. They feature slogans like, “It’s not a delusion, you’re incredible.” and “Define normal.”So I loved talking to Michelle about what schizophrenia actually looks and feels like, why getting her correct diagnosis was the best thing that ever happened to her, and how we can keep breaking down the stigma around mental illness.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

This is the second edition of Mindfully Together, a series of meditations we'll doing here on Mentally Together. Get comfy and listen up, and we hope it provides a few minutes of calm and relaxation in your day.Today I will lead you through a 10-minute breathing meditation, where we will be checking in with our breath - not trying to change it, just noticing how it feels in this moment. For me, tuning into my breath has become a really useful tool for my anxiety, ADHD, and just everyday life. When my brain starts bouncing all over the place, or I get stressed or upset about life, I try to remind myself that I have my breath, and I'm ok, right now.So get comfy (you don't even have to sit still) and enjoy this meditation.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

Hi friends! I'm back - and I'm sad. My mom passed away in August, and I've been trying to find the words to say and the energy to say it all. If you are going through a sad time - or know anyone who is - maybe you'll relate to some of what I'm feeling right now... there are a lot of feelings, that's for sure! Before I'm back with another normal interview-style episode next week, I just wanted to share a bit of what I'm going through, and how I'm getting through it - or at least attempting to.The grief book I mention in this episode is It's OK that you're Not OK by Megan Devine - find that and other books recommended by MT guests here: https://bookshop.org/lists/mentally-together/You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

This is the first edition of Mindfully Together, a new series of meditations we'll doing here. Get comfy and listen up, and we hope it provides a few minutes of calm and relaxation in your day.If you've never tried meditating before, it can sound intimidating. But here's a tidbit that really helped me when I was starting out: it's called a meditation PRACTICE. The goal is not to be perfect, or to have zero thoughts in your mind. Heck, my ADHD brain is always running... but becoming more aware of my thoughts and taking a few minutes to tune into my mind and body each day has really helped me.So get comfy (you don't even have to sit still) and enjoy this 10 minute meditation from therapist and meditation guide, Alison Diana.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

How do you support a friend who's sad? What do you do when someone is going through a hard time? That's not really something we humans learn in school, but it's obviously really important. And at some point, we'll all go through a sad time in our lives. My guest this week just released about exactly this subject - and it's a book that will only take you a few minutes to read!Tracy Subisak, is an author, illustrator, and yoga instructor. Her new book, the first one she’s both written and illustrated, is called Jenny Mei Is Sad. It tells the story of a young girl, Jenny Mei, who, yeah, is sad. But the book is told from the friend’s perspective, and shows what the friend does to support her through her sad times. Spoiler alert: all the friend does is hangout with her, do fun things when she wants to, allow her to be sad or frustrated when she feels that way. It’s a beautiful, simple message that I think we can all relate to. Unless you’ve never been sad, or known anyone who’s sad, and if that’s the case… are you human??So I loved talking to Tracy about how to start emotional conversations, how her friends helped her through a really sad time in her life, and how to breathe and move through the grief and stress that can manifest in our bodies.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.

We've talked about therapy, we've talked about antidepressants... but today we’re talking about a totally different type of treatment for depression: Ketamine.When I say that, you might think, WOAH, that’s an anesthetic. Or, that’s a party drug. But here's how it relates to mental health - there are now places you can go, doctors you can go to, to get a Ketamine infusion for your depression.And this is fascinaing to me. Because I am all for anything that can be proven to help people’s brains. Ketamine - because of its use as an anesthetic, is legal for medicinal use. And has been since the 1960s.My guests today are Dr. Steven Mandel and Sam Mandel, the founders of Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles!Dr. Mandel has been using Ketamine to treat patients for over 40 years, as a board-certified anesthesiologist. He’s also a founder of the American Society of Ketamine Physicians, Psychotherapists, and Practitioners. Sam Mandel is his son, and the Chief Operating Officer of Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles. They opened the clinic together 7 years, ago, and since then, have administered over 8 thousand treatments.I loved talking to them about what Ketamine infusions entail, how it actually works on the brain, and how it has helped many of their patients feel SO much better.You can keep up with Mentally Together on Instagram @mentallytogetherpod.
