Have you ever felt the need to hide how you’re really doing out of fear of rejection, being shamed, or simply not having the capacity to deal with it?
In our society, mental and emotional health often carry a shameful stigma. And because of that, people feel the need to perform and appear totally fine, when many are actually carrying around loads of struggles and hurt daily.
On today’s episode of the First15 podcast, Rachel and Josh sit down and chat with one of our favorite guests, Debra Fileta, LPC.
In this newest episode we cover specific topics like…
- Wholistic health and the crossover between spiritual, mental, and emotional health
- Why your mental health matters and why you should take it seriously
- Why it’s so important to drop the stigmas around mental health in our Christian communities
- Understanding the difference between mental illness and oppression
Debra is a licensed professional counselor, bestselling author, speaker, and host of the Love + Relationships podcast––a hotline-style show where people call in to get their relationship questions answered.
We absolutely loved having her on last year, and are so excited she’s back with us now to discuss her latest book, Are You Really OK?: Getting Real About Who You Are, How You’re Doing, and Why It Matters. Let’s dive right in!
