Close Calls as Wake-Up Calls

We continue the discussion on mental health we started in the last episode. There’s some more swearing and talk about depression and suicide. We want to normalize talking about mental health illness and how to cope, without stigma and shame and with a sense of humor.

We have archived our e-newsletters on our website at A lot of the content is evergreen and includes short personal narratives, tips and takeaways from recent episodes, funny things we text each other, and stuff we’re loving right now – on the web, podcasts and shows, and food and drink.

We’re taking a season break to work on some other Semi-Together-related projects, but we’re closing this season with a minisode to follow up on Episode 54: Let’s Talk About Mental Health. We discuss listener feedback, additional thoughts on mental health, and a few close calls that have acted as wake-up calls in our lives.
