Episode 83 – GU Conversations – A Mental Health Check-in
Happy 2022! We are back and the gang’s all here! This episode is a special, intentional deviation from our norm and we hope you’ll give this a listen if you’re a newbie or a regular. Mark, Jasmin, and Stephen sit down to talk about our mental health during the pandemic. What kind of things popped up for us, what measures we’ve put in place to work our way out of it, and how general geekery and pop culture have helped us keep our sanity as we move into this third calendar year of a global pandemic.
Our best advice? Talk about it! Talk to a professional, talk to some friends or family, or find your people online (like we did) and talk to them. We get a little serious, we have a few laughs, but mostly we’re grateful that we were able to open up to receiving the help we needed.
