The PsychCentral Show Podcast: A Graphic (Novel) Twist on the Personal Recovery Story

In this episode of the Psych Central Show, hosts Gabe Howard and Vincent M. Wales invite me to talk about the "wall” I hit that derailed my life. I speak about how it took years for me to understand that depression was the cause and what I needed to do about it. Also I get to explain how journaling was a great help in the recovery process and how it led to the idea of doing a graphic novel.

The Mental Breakdown and Psychreg Podcast

“I remember lying in bed with no motivation to get up and face the world. But I’d look over and I’d see my pad and my pen sitting there on a little table. And I would reach over, grab it and start writing. It helped and gave me a little bit of strength to start my day.” -Brent Williams

It was great to talk to Dr Berney and Dr Marshall at The Mental Breakdown and Psychreg Podcast. We spoke a lot about what got me out of depression and how journal writing and the book were an important part of this. Check out the full interview:

Dr. Robert Duff, a psychologist from Southern California and Blogger on mental health, did a video review on the book. His specialty is taking complex psychological issues and breaking them down into plain language.

About the book he says:

"Not only are the illustrations beautiful, but the story is personal and something a lot of you can probably relate to. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to those who prefer to consume self help in nontraditional ways."
