The suicides of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade over three years ago stunned many of us. Listen back to Dr. Hallowell's reaction to the news in this mini Distraction from June 2018. (Season 6 starts later this month.)
"Life is messy," he says. "Let's not be phony or drive people into hiding with the terrible constrictions of shame," Dr. H goes on to say.
Dr. Hallowell has long been on a mission to end the stigma of mental illness. He shares his thoughts on celebrating human life in all its forms, the good and the bad, and getting people the help they desperately need.
