Al Interviews Jordan Brown | Mental Health Advocate, Trained Social Worker & Author The Depression Files

In this episode, Al interviews Jordan Brown, mental health advocate, trained social worker, and author (recorded 4-6-20). Although Jordan has experienced anxiety since childhood, it wasn't until 2012, after open heart surgery, that he experienced depression. Jordan describes his path to recovery, including a six-day inpatient hospitalization. As a trained social worker with experience in the mental health field, Jordan shares some incredible insights. Combining his love of writing and his passion around advocating in support of others, Jordan began a blog. The blog eventually led to a daily newsletter titled, The Mental Health Update. Jordan will now be releasing his first book, titled, In Search of Happiness, Thursday, June 4, 2020! This mental health poetry book, that also includes three short essays, takes the reader along a journey through anxiety, societal pressure, and stigma to a place of finding healing and, eventually, a frontier of new meaning. The book will be available for purchase on Amazon in both e-book and paperback formats. Contact Jordan directly at for more information. You can find out more about Jordan, and other details on the release of his book, on his website, also titled, The Mental Health Update.

Here, you will find A New Dawn, another excellent mental health podcast that I am proud to say I was also a guest on. See the link below for my episode.

It is my belief that we can end the stigma of mental illness together. There are so many people suffering in silence. The people who dedicate hours of their time to helping others have a voice are amazing…..thank you all.
