Psychotherapist, life coach and equine therapist Melanie Vann combines clinical expertise, her own and others’ struggles with mental health and abuse to inspire and empower listeners.
Mental Health News Radio Network now features Memoirs of Madness, a podcast hosted by psychotherapist, life coach and equine therapist Melanie Vann. In addition to her clinical credentials Vann is the Network’s Program and Advocacy Director. She also regularly co-hosts the popular Empowered Empaths segment on Mental Health News Radio.
Memoirs of Madness aims to honor lived experiences including Vann’s own, of those who persist despite mental illness and abuse. It also explores traditional psychotherapy and other forms of healing. The show features real people sharing their stories of overcoming obstacles to find hope and healing
Vann said, “I love that I can have the perspective as the clinician but also the client… there really aren’t many topics I haven’t experienced myself which allows me to have a different more personal connection to MHNR Network than many may think. I’ve always known I would not just practice traditional psychotherapy, but explore other more experiential avenues as well. While you will often hear me say “I read this article about…” you will also hear very intimate details of my own struggles with mental health and abuse.”
