  • Anonymous Addiction Stories: Addicts in the Dark

    22 MAY 2024 · Join "Quick Nick" AKA Ari Daniel, host of the exceptional podcast, Addicts in the Dark discussing his show with Kristin.  About Ari: Growing up, my battle with addiction began at just 14 years old, plunging me into a lifelong struggle that often felt like an uphill battle. Despite finding success in my career as a radio host, addiction lurked in the shadows, casting a dark cloud over my achievements and tarnishing my sense of self-worth. In the world of broadcasting, there's an unspoken pressure to be larger than life, to always be "on" and ready to entertain. It's a realm that demands perfection, or at least the illusion of it, and this expectation weighed heavily on me. Behind the microphone, I grappled with demons that few knew about, using addiction as a coping mechanism to numb the stress and anxiety that came with trying to meet my own expectations of success. It wasn't until I started my journey of recovery that I truly began to understand the depth of my struggle. I realized that addiction wasn't just about the substance itself – it was about the void it filled, the pain it masked, and the connections it severed. In my lowest moments, I found solace in the realization that the opposite of addiction wasn't just sobriety, but genuine human connection. That's why I started my podcast – to create a space where people could share their stories, free from judgment or shame. I wanted to show others that they weren't alone in their struggles and that there was a community of support waiting for them. Through the power of storytelling, I hoped to break down the stigma surrounding addiction and foster a sense of belonging for those who needed it most.

  • On Going Healing: Mother Daughter Estrangement

    20 MAR 2024 · Join the amazing mother and daughter from the Which Way podcast, Shari and Jann Simmons, with Kristin discussing the healing journey of mothers and daughers.  In Which Way?…Mother and daughter tell parallel stories about trauma and its impact on the generations that follow. Jann Simmons’ story is a heart wrenching account of an orphaned child who suffered brutality at the hands of her mother, as well as many others. As an adult, Jann’s mind was closed to the horrors of her abuse, betrayal and abandonment until the day they all came flooding back to her conscious mind. That awareness began a 40-year transformation from a passive victim to resilient warrior. As a young teen, Shari struggled to make sense of her mother’s pain, but as a career mental-health therapist, she began to understand her mother’s journey and learn how trauma affects the brain. She offers strategies in this book for those suffering from past or present trauma or for those who love someone who is suffering. Both women tell their stories and drive home the fact that the choices we make can lead to self-hatred and resentment or to a life of courage, healing and beauty. Which Way? is an unforgettable story of love and transformation that will resonate with mothers, daughters, trauma survivors, those who love them and those who’ve made a career out of helping them heal. As authors and motivational speakers, a dynamic mother/daughter duo whose passion and expertise leave audiences inspired and equipped with tools to manage trauma, stress and relationships. When not speaking, Shari is a consultant, professor and licensed therapist who works with adolescents, adults, couples and families. Jann is a personal coach for women who have experienced past trauma. Both women have witnessed the power of unlocking personal stories and the resiliency that follows.

  • Did Your High School Have a Mental Health Department?

    7 FEB 2024 · Did your high school have an entire mental health department? Our host, Kristin, certainly did not experience this in the 80's at her high school! Tune in to hear two new podcasters to join our network that are currectly in high school (2024). Brannagh and Diya, two women we want to support with everything we can, created Y.A.N.A. (You are never alone) to help support mental health awareness for themselves and their peers! One of their amazing teachers is also a podcaster on the network, Amanda Grieme, of Who They Are We are juniors at Moravian Academy High School located in Bethlehem Pennsylvania. Mental health has played a major role in both of our lives. We believe mental health is of paramount importance as it directly influences our overall well-being and quality of life. It's the foundation for our emotional, psychological, and social well-being, and it impacts how we think, feel, and act daily. Good mental health enables us to handle life's challenges, cope with stress, build positive relationships, and make informed decisions. When mental health is neglected, it can lead to a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders, which can adversely affect every aspect of our lives. Their Mission Our mission-goal:Around late June of 2023, we established a podcast called YANA LV which stands for You Are Not Alone Lehigh Valley. As of November 2023, we have established roughly 20 episodes and have more in the making. In these episodes, we interview a multitude of people ranging from individuals with disabilities to teachers, psychologists, authors, and individuals with varying disorders such as bipolar, etc, and ask them to discuss how their life experiences correlate with mental health. We believe prioritizing mental health through seeking support when needed and reducing stigma around mental health issues is essential for living a fulfilling and productive life. Our story:So why did we create YANA LV? Although we have both struggled with our mental health and wanted to establish a new coping mechanism it was two different experiences that led us to the creation of this podcast turned organization. For Brannagh it was her brother with autism who often found himself struggling with his mental health. She wanted to show him he was not alone. For Diya, it was how mental health and Indian dance correlate, especially how her instructor's mental health was impacted.
