1. Our Turn to Talk: Teen Mental Health Unfiltered with Erin Gallagher and Beth Murphy Dr. Cam 39:40

In this episode we’re diving into a crucial topic that’s impacting teens across America. We’re witnessing a concerning rise in anxiety, depression, and tragically, record-high rates of youth suicide. But what’s really troubling is the relentless stigma that keeps so many teens from opening up about their struggles and seeking help.

Dr. Cam talks with two fantastic guests today: Erin Gallagher, the Executive Director of This Is My Brave (@thisismybrave), and Beth Murphy, the founder of Principle Pictures. These incredible women are part of the team behind the eye-opening documentary, “Our Turn to Talk.” (https://www.ourturntotalk.com/) This film follows several brave teens on their journey to shatter the mental health stigma by sharing their own stories – raw and unfiltered.
