Processing Loss & Living w/ Joanna Leynes

The Bánh Mì Chronicles

Trigger warning:  Topic of suicide and mental health For Season 1, Episode 2, I chatted with Joanna Leynes who shares her personal experience with mental health as a suicide survivor, and has since been on a mission to advocate for suicide awareness and prevention.  We connected through the loss of our mutual friend Allen Lau who passed away on 8/16/2019.  We shared fond memories of him, and the importance of honoring his memory.  This episode is dedicated in his honor.  Here's Joanna Leyne's bio: "Joanna is a 36-year-old wife and working mother of 2 young boys.
