MENtal Health Monday

Sam Kirkegaard OCD, Depression, Anxiety, and 44 Million Plus

Over 44 million people deal with some form of mental illness every year.  It's one of the many reasons I'm passionate about my Mental Health Mondays.  When I find others who are equally as passionate about open discussions about mental illness, I like to pick their brains and give them props.  This week we talk with Sam Kirkegaard, a former intern and buddy of mine who is starting a conversation on a platform of his own.  He has struggles of his own as well, AND he's a dude, so he's a perfect guest for a MENtal Health Monday in this Riggs Off The Radio podcast.

Jim Hill: Managing a lifetime of depression and surviving suicide.

Depression can be a monster, and managing life with this mental illness is not an easy task - but it CAN be done.  This week we talk to Jim Hill who is a board chair at Mental Health America of Wisconsin, a mental health advocate, and a survivor of suicide.  How has he managed to wrangle over 60 years of depression?  How has he seen the stigma shift on the mental health discussion over the years?  Why was the death of Robin Williams so impactful to him?  What went through his mind while he almost made the unthinkable decision to end his own life?  A fascinating conversation for this week's Mental Health Monday.

EP8 - Skydiving. Nervous? Listen to this before you make your first jump.

Skydiving.  I think that EVERYONE should at least make ONE skydive.  Why do I do it?  Why should YOU do it?  This podcast should ease your nerves about skydiving, and hopefully sway you to take the leap and experience the wonder of human flight.  I promise it's gonna be awesome.  Thanks for checking it out - I'll leave you with a quote from Leonardo Da Vinci - "For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return."
