Al Interviews John Arenburg | Addictions Counselor, Former Long-Term Care Worker, Volunteer Firefighter, Author & Mental Health Advocate The Depression Files

In this episode, Al interviews John Arenburg, addictions counselor, former longer-term care worker, volunteer firefighter, author, and mental health advocate (recorded 3-30-20). John struggled in school from a young age, acting out and smashing things and often finding himself in the principal's office. He began to see a social worker at the age of eleven or so, yet his behaviors peaked in middle school. John became a volunteer firefighter while still in high school and a full-active member at the age of nineteen. Soon after becoming a full-active member, John found himself facing his first fatality at the horrific scene of a mini barn fire. John describes several other life events that contributed to his eventual diagnoses of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), major depressive disorder, and generalized anxiety. John is close to publishing his first book, "The Road to Mental Wellness". Find out more about John's book and how you can support him through a GoFundMe page.

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.
