    Today we have a conversation with Adam Ross and i will let him explain who he is:

    I am a husband; I am father to two boys; and I am a mental health advocate. I founded Put it Out There, and regardless of your mental illness what’s important to remember is you don’t have to suffer alone. I created this site because I thought it might be helpful to people wanting to understand their own mental illness if they saw someone who has been there – who IS there.

    Adam lives with severe anxiety and depression. In this episode we will hear about his life living with a mental illness, as well as, his new facebook live events that help raise a voice; the Mindwell Sessions. They run every Thursday at 7pm.
