Welcome back to episode #5 of the Mental Health Megacast (even though Wes think it’s episode 4.haha )

I’m joined by my amazing podcasting partners and brothers in advocacy, Wes from AudioRising.com and Mike from MIkesOpenJournal.com.

We’re catching up with where we’ve been, what we’ve been up too, and what the future plans are for each of us. Then we discuss the importance of embracing where our lives are at, and knowing when we need to slow down a bit from the hectic pace that life and advocacy work often takes us.

We cover all of that and much more…so grab those headphones, plug us into your car stereo and join us as we rock this megacast.
