The Healthy Way: On Mental Health with Allie Marie Smith

Since COVID stormed the globe, mental health has been a main topic of conversation. But the reality is that this conversation has been building for many years due to increased digital use, social media, fractured families and communities, and our understanding of the definition of mental health.

1 in 5 adults experience mental health problems each year and depression, anxiety, and behavioral disorders are among the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents. On top of that, suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among 15-19 year olds.

This is a topic we need to discuss openly and often. Joining us today is the founder of Wonderfully Made, Allie Marie Smith. Allie has walked her own difficult journey with mental illness and is now using her story and that experience to help teens and young women.

There is hope, and you will hear that all throughout this interview. God has not left us, but is with us in our trials, our struggles, and our realities. Join us in this important conversation.
