Matt has an incredible sense of humor and there is a lot of laughter in this episode. But this episode is about a serious topic that is not talked about often enough, depression, especially bipolar disease. Matt shows incredible bravery in telling his story and this is an important discussion for all of us to participate in so we can learn and be available to help others in our lives when they are ready for taking the step to get help.

All you can do to help someone is to meet them where they are; if they are not ready for help there is little you can do to push them toward change.
Running absolutely helped me and I don’t know that I would be here without it.
We all need that one person in our life we can confide in and share with, and it is probably best if it is not your spouse.
