Depression and Grief

As you may know, I regularly appear on CHML900 AM’s The Bill Show as a relationship consultant. Bill and I cover a great range of issues. He’s a tremendous radio talk show host and I’m lucky to have the opportunity to learn from him. He’s unfailingly courteous to his guests and callers and genuinely interested in what people have to say, rather a far cry from the typical “shock jock” routine that seems to be prevalent these days. You know, the shows where it’s all about the host whose job, it seems, is to antagonize as many people as possible while rudely cutting short the barely expressed opinions of others. Bill’s an educated, informed gentleman, and a true master of the art of conversation.

Our last two shows were about dealing with grief and understanding depression. I think you’ll find them to be a much deeper, personal, and sensitive exploration of those two difficult topics than the usual clinical analysis typically found online. In it I share my own experience of depression and I share some stories illustrating the uniqueness of grief. Most of us have had to, and will have to, find our way through the pain associated with mental health issues and loss at some point in our lives. I hope listening to the podcasts of those shows will be helpful to you. You can hear them by copying and pasting this link into your browser window: As always, I value your feedback.
