E95: You Can't Break Up with Grief! with Emily Washcovick


Her first manic episode and hospitalization in October 2018 absolutely changed the way Emily Washcovick saw herself. Today, she's launching Bipolar Brought Balance to slay the stigma surrounding mental health and add her voice to the growing community of mental health advocates. This week, we're talking about regaining trust in yourself after things fall apart, how it's never the JOB of grieving people to educate the non-grieving, and why it's so, so important to set boundaries that honor your mental health. Also this week, I'm talking about how identity changes in the aftermath of loss and reading an excerpt from my new book, Permission to Grieve.
