Alysa welcomes the charmingly authentic host of Mental Illness Happy Hour, Paul Gilmartin, to chat about the intersection of mental health, trauma, communication, and relationships. In this episode, Paul discusses his journey through trauma, recovery, and his purpose in life. Through honest discussion, we can begin to destigmatize mental health, learn how we can be better friends to those struggling, and recognize we are not alone.
