E2: Jamie MacDonald

"I have nothing but good things to say about my time on the No Restrictions Podcast. So many avenues for mental health discussion are either fluffy "let's talk" without actually saying anything or exploitative and using mental health issues as a means of entertainment. No Restrictions Pod's frank, matter-of-fact way of discussing mental health issues really strikes that balance of discussing important topics without feeling tabloid or voyeuristic.

I think the thing I'm happiest with about the episode is how many people, especially men, have thanked me for discussing my experiences with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, and Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder. As men, we tend to not open up about personal and mental struggles, and if one person feels comfortable with seeking help after listening I'll be happy."
