Given recent news about Kanye West, his very public concerns related to his bipolar disorder and his family's public battle to support him, this episode could not be more timely. I am joined today by Mr. James Harris, a therapist (with a masters in clinical mental health counseling) a trauma survivor, author and mens mental health expert.

James very openly shared his lived experience as a ward of the state, a survivor of early childhood trauma, his military experiences and all of the life events that led him to want to heal and share his healing with others to teach them better ways to live. He authored a workbook called "Man, Just Express Yourself (which you can find online here: and he tours the globe speaking with men seeking healing practices, the women and men who love them, boys and communities.

He offers many practical tips for men and women on how to support the men in your life in their journey to mental health.

I hope you enjoy the show.
