Battling Cancer During a Pandemic feat. Julia Becker Collins

“Since I have been publicly talking about thyroid cancer, I have had two separate people tell me that they got checked, and they both have thyroid cancer, and they would never have gone for the check without me posting (on social media advocating for thyroid cancer education).”

In this week’s episode I am joined by Marketing Executive and Active Long Distance Runner, Julia Becker Collins. Julia was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic. While She’s still battling the disease, she’s using her story to save lives. Tune in to hear more about Julia’s journey battling cancer during a pandemic.

Debby Waldman — “How Covid-19 and Power Tools Helped Heal My Relationship With My Son”

Debby Waldman is a writer and ex-pat American who has lived in Edmonton, Alberta, since 1992. We were knitting buddies in New Haven, Connecticut in the mid-1980s when she was a newspaper reporter there, but we lost touch until recently, when a mutual friend sent me her New York Times essay, “How Covid-19 and Power Tools Helped Heal My Relationship With My Son”:

The essay is in part about how the pandemic gave her a chance to pursue a long-time dream, to learn woodworking, but it’s also about another step in her journey to understand and come to grips with her family’s legacy of mental illness. She has recently completed a draft of a memoir about the effects of the secrets and silence that surrounded the suicide of her father, a Reform rabbi, when she was 13. Learn more at

NEW to MHNR Network!!  Safe Haven Space: Focusing on the Mental Health & Well-Being of Refugee & Immigrant Students, Families, and Communities


Safe Haven Space, a podcast hosted by Egette Indelele, dedicated to learning through the stories of refugees and immigrants, amplifying their voices so that we may work to create a global community that is a Safe Haven Space.

“It’s really important that we hear directly from the source, that we ask and listen to their stories, their experiences, and how they would like to be supported, and the things they’d like to see.  It’s imperative that we center them and learn from them.” – Egette Indelele 

Egette Indelele, CEO & Founder of the non-profit organization, Safe Haven Space brings her personal experiences as a refugee, her professional experiences as a registered behavioral technician together with the stories of other refugees and immigrants to provide a safe place to discuss how to help the mental health and mental wellness within this often ignored community.  Many having had to deal with true hardships and loss before even arriving, combined with the struggles of a new life of transition and immense change when simply surviving is often the first priority, must now learn how to flourish.  Within this population, many have little understanding regarding mental health and mental well-being, and Safe Haven Space aims to help.

Safe Haven Space aims to not only provide a stage for those struggling to share their stories, but also for those listening, a place to feel a little less alone. Egette is also utilizing it as a platform to learn how to better serve the refugee and immigrant community.  As Safe Haven Space began their journey into podcasting their aim was not only to provide help to listeners in their episodes but to also use it as a place to learn, as an organization, how to better present effective interventions for those that they help through their organization.

When Your Mind Feels Like A Prison | Johnny Crowder

Johnny Crowder began exhibiting symptoms of mental illness at the ripe young age of 3, and it didn’t let up for a decade or two. His abuse-ridden adolescence was sprinkled with suicidal thoughts, obsessive-compulsive behavior, and some pretty eye-catching acne. In short, it wasn’t pretty—and neither was he. Crowder pursued a degree in psychology from UCF—that is, until his band, Dark Sermon, got signed and he left campus to tour the universe. Although he finished his degree on the road, he learned more about the human psyche through his travels than he ever could in a classroom. After years of intense therapy and heavy medication, Crowder is now functioning healthily without the use of either. In their place, he’s developed effective strategies that allow him to maintain a sound mind and body throughout his journeys with his new band, Prison, whose music addresses his difficult past and encourages others to persevere.

In this week’s episode I am joined by board certified psychiatrist, Dr. T. While he works with many different patients, he has a specialty focus of working with high performing athletes, entrepreneurs, and other high performing individuals.
