Leonard Su is a fully trained, fully licensed, fully retired vascular surgeon. After 4 years of college at Yale University, 4 years at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, 3 years of laboratory research, 7 years of residency both at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Washington, AND 10 years of clinical practice, he hung up his scalpel and picked up a keyboard. He traded O.R. Lights for stage lights. His clinical career was cut short by mental illness, but he remains ever willing to help others. Only now instead of sutures and stents, he uses words and the power of talk. He speaks on the issues of mental illness in society, particularly in the medical profession, and strives to start conversations about mental illness. His background, while clearly steeped in medicine, also includes experience with stage such as with dancing in a local production of the Nutcracker, improv Comedy, and small episodes of trying stand-up Comedy.

One of my personal favorite tools for self care are Affirmations. Yes, it is important to continue therapy to help process trauma and pain, but it is equally important to practice self-care the other 29 days of the month. Affirmations are a great way to rebuild your foundation and help you to realize that you are worthy and deserving of all the great things that life has to offer. Today I sit down to have a conversation with ThinkUp App’s Founder, Irit Wald to discuss her journey with affirmations, as well as my own personal progress and growth over the last 3 years using ThinkUp App. Listen in.

Through this podcast, you will meet our host Trevor, who in addition to working at McLean, also knows a thing or two about living with mental health challenges. With Trevor as our moderator, he will guide us through up close and personal conversations with clinicians, advocates, celebrities, and ordinary people who have extraordinary stories to share. Along the way, you’ll also get to know Trevor, as he opens up about his own experiences with mental illness, growing up in a Native American household, and traveling the globe as a documentary filmmaker. In this week’s episode, Trevor introduces you to Jeff, whose experience with mental illness led him on a long journey that finally ended with him being paired with his service dog, Earl. Jeff talks about how his life with Earl led to his founding of Go Fetch Wellness, an organization focused on helping others discover the benefits of service animals for those living with chronic mental health conditions. It’s a great episode so check it out and let us know what you think at podcast@deconstructingstigma.org.

Jeff is the Founder of www.gofetchwellness.com. He and his service dog Earl have traveled around the United States educating and serving those in the mental health field about how animals play an integral role with anyone who struggles with mental illness.

Jeff was one of the three participants for the #BeVocalSpeakUp campaign http://www.bevocalspeakup.com/documentary.html, as well as, many speaking engagements including NAMI, The National Council for Behavioral Health, and McLean Hospital.

Diana Cusumano is a LMHC, NCC, RYT Yogi, and Mindfulness Coach. I met Diana when she was a board member for NAMI Westchester. She currently works with the JED Foundation setting up mental health programs at colleges nationwide. She prefers to take on mental health and wellness from every angle in order to minimize it’s ability to take up too much space in our lives. Today we discuss how her own struggles with anxiety lead her to combine therapy and yoga to take a new approach towards mental health conditions. Diana is a warrior that strives to help others find their warrior within. Listen more. Listen in…Literally. Namaste’.
