September 7, 2018

Happy September!

Y’all, I could seriously burst with all the excitement that I have about this month’s podcast. We are talking about all things mental health and I have my best friend on the show.

Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Cerrissa Hugie is going to shed some light on why mental health and having a stable mind is important to God. She’s also going to explain why emotional vulnerability and intentional self-care is so necessary to live a productive, healthy life.
