This podcast strives to accomplish many things: we hope to be entertaining and educational, and we hope to make our listeners think about their own lives -- or about the life of someone they know who lives with mental illness.

There is, however, an easier way to describe this podcast. It’s an advocacy effort led by two people who are award-winning advocates nationally. In this episode, our hosts each tell three stories about their mental health advocacy work. Two of them are true and one of them is a lie. Is truth stranger than fiction? You decide. Listen Now!
