Kristin Sunanta Walker is the CEO of Mental Health News Radio Network – a global network of podcasts dedicated to mental health, which is the only podcast network in the world dedicated to this topic. She is the host of multiple podcasts and is also a founding member of Digital Tech Initiative – created to research, study, and provide awareness around digital media addiction.
Kristin shares her personal story and how that led to the formation of the network.
There’s a lot more to mental health than just talk therapy.
For Kristin, talk therapy was very helpful.
People have to try a few things until they find something that works for them.
Listeners to the network often say that the shows let them feel less alone.
Kristin’s show is about healing from abuse.
We have a long discussion about digital media addiction and how Kristin decided to learn as much as possible about it.
If you aren’t aware of how you are using technology, you may not be aware of how it is using you.
Students often don’t know how to have real human communications.
By talking about digital addition it helps people realize that it is.
Kristin tells us what to do if you are addicted to your digital media.
People are beginning to see that there has to be time off from devices.
There’s a lot of discussion going on about how to disconnect from media and reconnect with each other.
A lot of young people don’t have a lot of experience connecting.
We need to figure out how to connect to each other more authentically.
