On November 1st Nate shaved his beard and began a fundraiser to support the cause and thought it would be a good idea to share a little bit of his own journey through therapy, mental health, and what coming out the other side of depression can look like.
In this episode Nate and Emily talk about their perceptions of mental health growing up, and how that affected their approach to dealing with depression. Nate walks through how he has dealt with the pressures of conforming to society's views of masculinity, and how that made him want to "fix it" himself. They share some surprising data on how men respond to therapy differently, how the search for meaning and belonging contribute to success, and how identifying emotional health can be tied to physical well being. Emily and Nate discuss how overcoming the fear of being perceived as broken can hinder us in creating a pathway to a better understanding of ourselves and our partners.
