Mental health is an important topic to us here at When It Was Cool because it directly impacts our household. Tonya from When It Was Cool has battled mental health issues for many years, particularly clinical depression, anxiety disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder. Through her struggles and treatment for mental health disorders we have come to learn a lot about this illness that often clusters up on sufferers making diagnosis and treatment more difficult than expected.
On this special free audio podcast we discuss what mental health issues are (they are a legitimate sickness not "crazy"), the stigma attached to them (that is why Tonya is open concerning her illness), and how to navigate the treatment options available. Karl discusses what it is like to live with someone who suffers from mental illness and what you should and should not do to try and help.
