In this episode Shoshana puts it all on the table. She airs out her dirty laundry by sharing her own struggles with mental illness. We cover a broad interpretation of what mental illness is and the stigma that is associated with it. We listen to a clip by Howie Mandel who talks about the stigma of mental illness for the Bell Let’s Talk campaign. Shoshana shares what was going on inside her body and head during her most vulnerable times and Adam gives his perspective on what was happening at that time too. We also discuss ideas for support and treatments for mental illness. We hope this episode will encourage you to help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness and encourage yourself or others to seek help if it is needed.


In this episode we discuss:

  • Our quote of the day: “Smile, you will not only make your day better, but you will improve someone else’s day too .” ~ Mr. Chaim
  • What is Mental Illness?
  • Shoshana’s experience
  • The stigma around Mental Illness
  • Support
  • Treatment
  • Mark’s question “Hey, Plant Trainers, We want to eat organic but find the prices high, the quality uneven and aren’t sure we really even understand what we are getting when something says its “organic”. Any advice?

    Shosh I have to give you big kudos for baring your soul. It took quite a bit of strength to be able to do that. I’m quite sure I never would have been able to be so open and honest . I hope it has been therapeutic for you I actually admire your openness. Gd bless you . Know that you will always have our love and support
