In our newest format (Live call-in show podcast), the hosts discussed various "aha" realizations that impact all of us and our mental health, including changes in every day behaviors such as sleep and structure in the home. They discussed the impacts of quarantine on romantic and family relationships and the positive impact of expanding telehealth services for everyone in need, increasing the accessibility and availability of treatment providers. Callers raised issued related to self-care and making necessary changes when you realize you are in a toxic situation and that we all need to "tweak" our lives when a change is needed.
