Life doesn't always go as planned. Challenges can leave us feeling confused, sad or hopeless even. When that happens, we are faced with a choice: We can struggle alone or come together as a community.
Fireside Chat is a weekly talk show led by your amazing host Marie. We meet each other where we are – you can choose to participate or just listen. Every week, we will focus on a new topic close to your hearts. We will invite fascinating guests, share "Fireside Facts" and community stories.
Your Host: Marie
My goal is to end the stigma, surrounded by misunderstanding and fear. My mental health issues do not make me any less of anything: less of a person, less of a wife, less of a dog mom, less of a friend, or capable employee. I have anxiety and depression with some compulsive thoughts and flashbacks thrown in to keep things fun, but as cliché as it sounds, I will not let them have me.
To those trying to understand mental illness, I hope I can shed some light. To those suffering, I hope that my resources will make you more comfortable with the idea of reaching out to a professional.
