Join us for an hour with Kim Saeed of LetMeReach.com. Kim is doing some incredible work in the field of narcissistic abuse recovery.

KidsPeace came on our radar while we were researching organizations that offer family support for autism treatment. Little did we know how incredible and expansive this organization is and how they are serving all of the needs with their Behavioral Health services. Join Chis Ferry and Robert Martin for some awareness, some enlightenment, and some positive action towards reducing mental health stigma.
We all have ups and downs because our brain is designed to work that way. Our happy brain chemicals are not meant to be on all the time. They evolved to reward survival behaviors by spurting when you see a way to meet a need. The spurt is soon over and you have to do more to get more. That drove your ancestors to do what it takes to keep their genes alive, over and over. Your ups and downs are easier to accept when you understand the brain you’ve inherited from your ancestors. You can turn on your happy chemicals in new ways when you understand the pathways that control them.
Join us as we interview Dr. Loretta Breuning to discuss her book and her ground breaking work on the Habits of a Happy Brain.
Counselor Steven Welch joins us to discuss Sex Addiction. We came upon his article in Swerv Magazine, Are You A Sex Addict? which afforded us the opportunity to interview him again but, this time, on our Mental Health After Dark podcast.
Join Steven and our host, Kristin Walker, as they discuss how sex addiction impacts an individual and our society.
Matt Joseph Diaz joins us again on Mental Health After Dark. We really tried to stay on topic for this one and we did a pretty good job. We covered “thin shaming”, communication, relationships, dating, social media…..we covered a lot. He’s always a blast with a wealth of information, yummy male empathy, vulnerability, and openness. Our entire team is excited to hear what he’s going to say, how many times our host, Kristin Walker, is going to interrupt him to riff off of his wisdom, and how intuitive he is about being human.
Gabor Maté, M.D. joins us after his presentations at The National Council for Behavioral Health’s annual conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Join us for a interview with Michael Flora, Senior Operations and Management Consultant for MTM Services, a strategic partner with National Council for Behavioral Health. Michael presented at the annual conference for the council about revenue cycle management for Certified Community Behavioral Health Centers.
