Shownotes

Listen as my classmate Sammecia Bagley talks openly for the first time about her battle with depression. While Sammecia has talked with close friends and family, she has never spoken publicly about her struggle.

Hear her brave conversation about what helps her deal, what triggers an episode and why it was hard for her to decide to step forward.

You will also learn more about the chance to take a mental health first aid training - an opportunity to learn more about how you can detect signs that someone is in mental distress and how you can get them connected with help. If you want to know more click on the links below.
