Your Heard Tell Show is turning down the noise of the news cycle and getting to the information we need to discern our times by once again pausing everything else and talking about mental health with Dr. Kathryn Gordon, clinical psychologist & author of The Suicidal Thoughts Workbook. Dr Katie once again not only discusses current issues like the election season, news cycle, and the ongoning debate over social media and mental health, but also gives examples of good mental health in tv, movies, and media, lays out in practical terms how to moderate and monitor your own mental health as well as those around you, and explains in real terms how taking care of our minds and emotions is essential to being health in all other areas of life. Plus, we talk the rising influence of content creators, changing times, how old tv shows and movies might have been deeper and better on mental health than we realized, and more.

All that and more on this episode of Heard Tell.
