depression lifers mindset Apr 06, 2019



The longer a bipolar disorder has to play havoc in your life, the more you retreat into self-centered thinking and activities. And getting sucked into this is no way to stay productive and healthy!

Listen as Mike shares with Daniel how their unexpected and service-based working relationship turned out to be the rocket fuel for his recovery from a 2-year depression.
