Mental Health with Dr. Melissa Mork Podcast
The podcast, “Mental Health with Dr. Melissa Mork,” tells stories of mental health, mental illness, resilience and faith.
The goal of this podcast is to reduce the stigma of mental illness in our community. Stigma is harmful because it hurts those who are already suffering.
Illness is illness. There is no shame in having poor eyesight and needing contacts or glasses, and there is no disgrace in having asthma and relying on an inhaler to breathe. Let’s remove the stigma of mental illness that may also warrant medical intervention, accommodations and support.
By sharing these stories, we are bringing our narratives out of the darkness and into the light, where shame and stigma can be diffused. Join me in hearing my guests’ stories of mental illness and health.
