On this final episode on the topic, mental health awareness, Arlyn and Alexis do a recap on the previous episodes and we talk about our take on mental health. We want to thank everyone so much for taking the time to listen, for the love and support, and to everyone that was open to interviewing on such a personal topic.
We wanted to introduce this topic on the podcast because there is a large increase of concern for mental health and we feel that there's a stigma about mental health and we want to humanize these things that we all personally experience. We do our best to bring awareness to mental health and to try to be supportive in the community to show that nobody is alone.
Everybody has mental health and it's important that we try to look at the matter with objectivity and to show compassion and empathy to the people around us. We all struggle with a battle that nobody knows about. It's okay to talk about it and to share thoughts about mental health and how you feel. We do our best to create a safe space for anyone listening and for the amazing people that have allowed us to interview them.

Let's talk about MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS.
As artists and living in this day and age as a human, there is a huge underlying issue with mental health awareness. We want to humanize these topics and bring as much awareness as possible, by creating a safe space for other people to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences on their mental health. We want to thank everyone that was open enough to give us the opportunity to ask them questions on such a personal topic and we hope that creating these spaces allows those of you listening to take away from each episode.
