Have you ever skipped plans to take a “me” day? Do you admit to it? Do you give people a general, “Oh, I’ve got a doctor’s appointment,” when you’re, in fact, getting acupuncture for the fourth time this month? Why do we feel the way we feel about our own mental health and how do we talk about the way we treat ourselves?
This episode’s guest, Torri Shack — Tangible Movement Founder and Executive Director, chats with us about the connotations that rear their weird heads in dialogues about mental health and mental illness, and how she shifts her position within said conversations from one that is affected by them to one that is affecting them. She speaks about her personal challenges with depression, addiction, suicide, bipolar II, and personal relationships, and how she came to form a movement that supports the education, awareness, recovery and wellness of those dealing with similar matters. We wish you all acceptance, authenticity, and ultimate self-care! xoxo
