We all know that health is important. But, oftentimes we limit our perception of health to that of our physical body, rather than emotional health and well-being. Meanwhile, anxiety, loneliness, and depression have become pervasive problems. Professional help to cope with mental health problems comes in many forms. This month’s podcast listening list looks at various forms of therapy and how they may/may not help people cope with mental health struggles.
