Redefining Mental Toughness with Colleen Ryan-Hensley

Ep. 164

Did you know that 300 million people suffer from depression globally? Without the proper help and care, many turn to temporary solutions like drugs or alcohol to relieve their pain. However, these types of coping mechanisms are band-aid solutions and do little to help in the long run. So what can individuals who deal with depression on a daily basis do to cope? 

Colleen Ryan-Hensely is a navy veteran, performance coach, and mental health advocate. As someone who has also suffered from depression, Colleen believes in proactive mental health as well as redefining the term “mental toughness”. In this episode, Colleen opens up about her battle with depression and how she used her experience to help others suffering in the same way. She shares some valuable insight and also talks about her  #BingingSober program.
