EPISODE 1: ANXIETY
In our pilot episode, we meet with Greg, a successful Hollywood stuntman, who is struggling with debilitating anxiety. Joe speaks about anxiety’s psychological roots in the brain and the brain’s “fight or flight” defense mechanism. We learn about the gravity of anxiety and the effect it has on the 40 million Americans that suffer from it, in addition to learning about the financial and human toll it brings.
EPISODE 2: PTSD
Episode 2 explores PTSD with Christina, a former police officer who was shot in the line of duty. We learn, however, that it is not just first responders or combat veterans who suffer with PTSD, but that there are about 7.7 million Americans who suffer with it, as well. We show how one can develop PTSD through a number of instances, and though one would like to think otherwise, we are all vulnerable.
EPISODE 3: TEEN SUICIDE
Episode 3 explores teen suicide and grief, experienced from a mother’s perspective. In this episode, we examine how Kay, a mother of three, recovered from the devastation of her 17 year old son’s suicide, by learning to accept and embrace her story, while honoring her son by becoming a teacher and mentor to other troubled youth.
