In episode 55 of the Let’s Talk Mental Health podcast I am joined by the incredible Dr Meg Van Deusen.
Meg is a licensed clinical Psychologist based in Seattle Washington and also the author of the fantastic book “Stressed in the US – Twelve Tools to Tackle Anxiety, Loneliness, Tech-Addiction and More”
In this episode we talk about a whole range of topics from the impact of attachment theory throughout our lives, to the importance of sleep and the unconscious roles of dreams.
We also dive into the impact of chronic stress on the brain and body and how 2020 has tested people beyond their normal expectations.
Whilst Meg’s book is called Stressed in the US we both comment how what she covers in her book is certainly applicable to the whole world and the tools that she has used in her private practice for a number of years and now is sharing them with the world.
After the recording Meg also let me know that any viewers or listeners can access her “Quick Guide to Stress” by signing up to her email list here: https://www.sightonstress.com/free-quick-guide-to-stress/

The concept for “Let’s Talk Mental Health” is quite straight forward. To chat with my guest in a neutral comfortable environment where we can be open and honest about mental health issues and talk about our own experiences.
Men need to talk more about Mental Health and this series is looking to address that by showcasing what others have been through and highlighting that vulnerability is a strength.
