Wednesdays with Watson

PTSD, Jesus and Me There is much stigma to mental health issues in America and in the world. It is, perhaps, the most overlooked healthcare issue in society today. However, when we choose to address it and surround ourselves with people who refuse to let us ignore it, there IS healing and there IS Hope. This is a podcast hosted by a trauma survivor, a CPTSD patient, and a thriver. This raw and real podcast seeks to educate through story, science, and a faith that heals because of a God who understands our sufferings.#PTSD #Anxiety #Depression #MentalHealthMatters #EMDR #RRT #LFS #Survivor #Jesus

CHANGE.

Is a complete sentence. What would happen if we just changed? What if we understood? What if we listened? What if we stopped trying to fix the ills of racial trauma and first listened to those who do not look like us? Do we even know or more importantly care about trauma that other communities, endure?

How do we understand without making survivors of racial traumas our professors? Today, two very special people agreed to do j...

Dear Listeners:

This podcast is from my heart to yours.

I got behind the mic for this unscheduled episode out of pure obedience for a little therapy. The events of the last two years topped off by more civil unrest and eastern Europe at war made me wonder, are you feeling like I am right now? I hope this episode will serve to encourage you to provide some much needed soul rest.

Much of this podcast references ...
