New podcast from our instructor, Chris McLaughlin, LCSW

Inspired Ally in care

Greetings, all! Happy Pride!

I wanted to share with you a new passion project that I’ve been working on for the past few months. Introducing, the Inspired Insights Podcast!!

Episode 1 just dropped last Friday, and new episodes will come out every Friday at noon EST for the next 10 weeks. Then, my cohost and I plan to press pause and see where we have been and where we want to go next. Any and all feedback is welcome! Full disclosure, this is my first time doing anything like this, and we’ve learned so much in just the first few episodes. I promise, we REALLY get our vibe going come episode 5!!! 😊 I hope folks will give us a listen, and please feel free to share. Here’s more about the podcast:

"Inspired Insights" is a groundbreaking podcast that bridges generational gaps and shatters the stigma surrounding mental health. Co-hosted by Chris, a 49(ish)-year-old gay man and seasoned clinical social worker with decades of experience in mental health advocacy, and Soren, a vibrant 17-year-old queer teen passionate about activism and change, this podcast is a broad tapestry of stories, strategies, and support. Each episode delves into the complexities of mental health and personal identities, offering a unique blend of professional insight and personal experience. Through their candid conversations, Chris and Soren tackle a wide range of topics—from anxiety and depression to LGBTQ+ issues and beyond. They celebrate the diversity of lived experiences, providing a platform for voices often marginalized in mainstream discussions on mental health. "Inspired Insights" is more than just a podcast; it's a community where empathy and understanding flourish, empowering listeners to embrace their truths and engage in open, honest dialogues about mental health with the understanding that we truly all are a work in progress. Join Chris and Soren on a journey that transcends generational divides as they explore the power of vulnerability, the importance of visibility, and the endless possibilities that come from genuinely listening to each other's stories. Welcome to The “Inspired Insights” Podcast; where insights know no bounds and every story matters along the path towards discovering our best selves in the days ahead.

Thanks, all! It’s a bit scary putting this out there to the universe (especially in the world we live in right now), but these are things that are important to Soren and I, and we’re so hopeful to add a bit of empathy and inspiration to those who listen in!

Hope y’all are well!
