Katie Cheeseman and her husband have been neighbors and good friends of ours for a few years now. On top of being great friends, Katie has a brilliant and creative mind. She kick-started her out passion project called @TheListeningEarProject (Instagram) where she interviews the elderly and documents some incredible stories. This alone is deserving of a podcast interview, but her recent comments and thoughts on the importance of mental health really stood out to me.

Anxiety, depression, postpartum are all very real things, and all put a major damper on creativity. Some of these topics we cover are things I’ve experienced in my life that I’ve always been too shy to share vocally. Shes inspired me to learn more about it, and take care of my mental health in a way only I know how. This, in turn, has helped me be at the top of my game and keep the creative juices flowing.

If you or someone you love are struggling with these very real mental health concerns, please contact someone for help. There is no shame in this.
