Brief Episode Summary:

“Until the masks come off and the wax removed, every date is a blind one!” Notwithstanding the front one puts on, the façade, when it comes to the myriad of mental health issues one may be living with due to burying it and not getting it out into the open, understandably out of fear, we truly don’t know whose home, that is, who lives and suffers, behind the mask! 

Key Themes:

  • Coming clean with aspects of one’s life is always a risk, especially when it includes details that may very well be harshly judged by some of those who listen to this podcast.  Why did Susan choose to do this podcast?
  • When it comes to Susan's mental health, she transparently discloses what she refers to as her "Perfect Storm," everything from the storm clouds that were on the horizon to her broken moments!
  • Discover the horror Susan experienced institutionally within the mental health system.
  • When it comes to defusing the stigma associated with mental health, the worst thing one can do is suppressing the emotions!
