“Shame Loses Power by Being Talked About”

Meridian, Idaho, April 6, 2021— In the April series of the Intentionally Disruptive podcast, former radio personality and podcast host Shawnda McNeal connects listeners to several guests, covering topics like anxiety, depression, imposter syndrome, and PTSD. The series is titled ‘No Perfect People’ and dives deep into mental illness in preparation for May Mental Health Awareness Month. 

“I passionately believe that shedding light on mental health is what it takes to facilitate healing,” says McNeal. “I have learned so much through dealing with my own personal darkness, and I want to shout from the rooftops that hope can be found in sharing your struggles! This April series allows us to spread that message.”

Rachel Trimble, podcast guest on episode 15, adds, “PTSD and the correlation between trauma and addiction is something that not many people have education on. Those who struggle with it struggle with shame. But shame loses power by being talked about, so I hope someone can hear my story and that it resonates and brings new awareness, either in themselves or in how to view and treat others.”

Intentionally Disruptive podcast sponsor, health company Microbe Formulas, also stresses the importance of mental health in overall well-being. Microbe focuses on creating innovative supplements to support gut health. The crucial link between gut health and mental health is discussed more here.
