Today we continue our conversation with Eric Kussin. The founder of the organization #SameHere, a global mental health movement.
Eric previously shared his personal story of battling a severe mental health crisis, his misdiagnosis, the missing piece of the puzzle, and what led him to find #SameHere. If you missed it, I highly recommend you go back and check out Episode 68 first.
In this episode, we openly discuss suicide and suicidal ideation. If you’re vulnerable to this right now, please check out the resources in the show notes where you can reach out for help.

17:49 – “Why can’t I reach out to you, who’s next to me, and go, ‘ma’am, I’m having those suicidal thoughts that are telling me to hurt myself. Can you keep me safe right now? Can you keep me out of the situation?'”
