Most … Continue reading EP 397 In a Nation of Grocery Chains, Why Do We Have So Many ‘Food Deserts’?

Removing the Mental Health Stigma within the Gaming Community

Listen in to a great show as Kristin speaks with Aaron Wanserski about helping remove mental health stigma within the gaming community.  

Aaron Wanserski, the Video Game Outreach Director for The Center for Suicide Awareness, spent 12 years as a police officer before branching out into helping people in a new way.  As a self-proclaimed nerd, he realized that mental health is rarely talked about and set out to change that.  With their new podcast here on MHNR Network, The Center for Suicide Awareness, he hopes to help shatter the stigma.  The slogan for their podcast is “Everyone has a story.”  This is to help people understand that their stories are just as worth sharing.  

Be kind, you are loved, you are important, and remember, you are not alone.

139 – Patricia Young – Unapologetically Sensitive, the Gifts of Being a Highly Sensitive Person

“I wish somebody would have told that to me: it’s okay to struggle. We’re supposed to struggle; we’re humans. We’re complicated; we’re messy.” ~Patricia Young

One of my greatest joys in life is connecting with a fellow outcast and truth-teller. All the better if said person comes equipped with a nickname like Mad Lady-Balls. Patricia Young, LCSW, the person behind the stern, brass-plated moniker is everything you’d expect her to be: hilarious, whip-smart, and dishy. She’s also unapologetically sensitive, a trait she’s built into both a successful career and a popular podcast.

Highly sensitive. If you’ve ever had that phrase leveled against you, then you know the sting of those words. You’re also acquainted with the shame-spiral that accompanies all that over-thinking and over-feeling. But it’s precisely these traits, the intensity and the emotionality, that Patricia says any highly sensitive person (or HSP) should reclaim and celebrate. Her podcast, Unapologetically Sensitive, gives HSPs the space to come as they are.

I could talk to Patricia for hours; she extends the same authenticity on display in her podcast to this show. She does the same in her therapy and coaching practice. “It doesn’t matter if we’re therapists or not. We’re still human beings that have human struggles on a daily basis. And I really want to pull the curtain back on that because we’re just humans.”


Patricia Young is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Coach. She knows what it’s like to feel like an outcast, misfit, and truth teller. Learning about the trait of being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), helped Patricia rewrite her history with a deeper understanding, appreciation, and a sense of self-compassion. She created the podcast Unapologetically Sensitive to help other HSPs know that they aren’t alone and that being an HSP has amazing gifts and some challenges. Patricia works online globally working individually with people, and she teaches Online Courses for HSPs that focus on understanding what it means to be an HSP, self-care, self-compassion, boundaries, perfectionism, mindfulness, communication and creating a lifestyle that honors us.
