Nancy Virden is a suicide attempt survivor who is passionate about sharing hope. She is an author, Mental Health and Recovery Advocate, Founder of Always the Fight Ministries, and host of Compassionate Love Radio. She and host Kristin Walker took a journey, as often happens on this podcast, letting the discussion take on a life of its own. Probably one of the more fun and relaxed interviews Kristin has done. Two mental health patients talking about their experiences around getting well. Nancy was diagnosed with Major Depression Recurrent in 2005, and closely related to people with the same disease, Nancy has been on two intense sides of the issue. Audiences relate to her experiences as she encourage those who struggle with depression, and teaches supports how to help loved ones without becoming overwhelmed. Nancy offers a revealing look into major depression and recovery as only one who has been there can. She shares her experiences and unique insights in-person, in interviews for publications and radio programs, and via the Compassionate Love Blog. Her books can be purchased via her website.
