WTH Is “Fighting In The Open?”

May 20, 2020

Theresa and America explain what the title of the podcast means and how they both embrace it. They give a brief history of Clifford W. Beers and how his contributions sparked the mental health reform movement by trying get more people to “fight in the open.” They both share how their families handle the conversations around mental health, how open they choose to be about their mental health on social media and how your story can be empowering to others.
