Special guests include, Representative Four Price, Laura Street from Panhandle Behavioral Health Initiative, and Andy Keller, the President and CEO of Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute.

It should be okay for someone to speak up and ask for help when it comes to their mental health. A conversation should be had to help end the stigma of mental health issues.
