74: Throwback #3—Reducing the Stigma of Mental Health with Danielle Liss
She Doesn’t Settle
Today’s episode is another powerful one in my throwback series which will be running over the coming weeks while I take some time to work on my writing. As I’ve mentioned before, I absolutely love throwbacks because they give us all the chance to reflect and see if we have been applying the information and strategies offered in these episodes, and to determine what we may need to do differently or where we may need to take more action in these areas. So once again, whether you’ve heard them before, or whether this is your first time, you are going to get something valuable out of these episodes, which just happen to be some of my favorites, so get your notepad ready and prepare yourself to soak up the knowledge and wisdom that is coming your way. This particular episode features Danielle Liss, a lawyer based in Las Vegas who specializes in streamlining every conceivable legal hurdle for small business owners. To give you an idea of her impressive resume, she’s the founder and CEO of Businessese (which specializes in DIY legal templates), the owner of Liss Legal, the full-time general counsel for an eight figure digital health and fitness company, and, to boot, she’s been named one of the top lawyers in Las Vegas for the last two years. Danielle has also struggled with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) for a very long time, and, after finally receiving treatment for her condition, she now advocates for pushing the conversation about mental health into the open so everybody can become more comfortable with it. In fact, it was while I was coaching Danielle that she chose to address her OCD and not settle for what life and her mind had thrown her way. In this interview, Danielle discusses her history with this condition, explains why sufferers of mental illness should be open to medication and why it’s nothing to be ashamed of, and examines how we can confuse mental illness for some essential part of who we are. By the end of this interview, I hope that her story inspires you and you feel empowered enough to take action in your own life if you, yourself, are struggling. As always, if there is a topic you would like me to discuss or a guest to interview on the podcast, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com - I would love to hear from you! The Finer Details of This Episode: - Danielle discusses books and explains why she prefers to listen to non-fiction rather than read it. - How Danielle came to work with me and identify some of the compulsions that were adding to the stress in her life. - What it’s like to live with negative and disturbing intrusive thoughts. - Exploring the fear that treating mental illness can impede some unique aspect of your personality. - Why it’s important to overcome a fear of psychiatric medication, especially if mental illness is affecting your life on a day-to-day basis. - Perhaps the most essential step: finding some outlet, be it a professional or a friend or even a journal, that will help you collate your thoughts. - Which questions you SHOULD and SHOULDN’T ask someone struggling with OCD. - If you don’t have a mental illness, what terms should you use to describe your quirks that don’t co-opt the struggles of those who do deal with them? - TAKE ACTION: if you have thoughts or feelings on this discussion, or your own experiences with mental health that you’re willing to open up about, please share your response to this episode on social media! Quotes: “A piece of me was extremely happy that there was a name for this.” “It’s been a really interesting period of reflection as I have determined what does actually make me succeed.” “If you are struggling, go to a professional, talk to them.” “I am all for what works, but don’t deny it just because it’s dispensed by a pharmacist.” “You’ve gotta have that one person you can break the ice with.” “This diagnosis is a part of me, it’s not all of me.” Show Links: Liss Legal - https://www.lisslegal.com/ Businessese homepage - https://www.businessese.com/ BetterHelp Professional Counseling - https://www.betterhelp.com/ Talkspace Online Therapy - https://www.talkspace.com/ Kelly’s homepage - http://www.kellytravis.net
