Getting help for mental health shouldn't leave a person thinking that others will treat them differently, or that their job is at risk. That's part of the reason Kristin Walker founded the Mental Health News Radio Network, which is currently home to over 40 podcasts on a variety of mental health topics. She talks to Ned about her personal story (which includes being diagnosed with ADHD at age 48) along with a discussion about the stigma of getting help for mental health issues and how she's actively fighting to change the status quo.
