Do The Thing, with Whole30's Melissa Urban - May 21, 2019 - 37:46

Brandon Talbot (he/his) is a former professional volleyball player, NASM Master Trainer, and jiu-jitsu competitor. He’s also my boyfriend, and one of more than 16 million Americans living with depression. In this intimate conversation, we examine the effect depression has had on his life and career as an athlete, the tactics he uses today to pull himself back into the light, how I’ve navigated discussions around his suicidal thoughts, and how best to support your loved ones during their dark days. Please note, our discussion today contains adult themes, including suicide and suicidal thoughts. If you’re struggling with mental health issues, support is available 24/7 through the Suicide Prevention Hotline, 1-800-273-8255, with additional resources in the show notes at whole30.com/podcast.
