Addison teaches about the five pillars of peer support and how we can use these tools to help express ourselves and provide effective support.

Addison Brasil discusses his incredible journey through losing his father to suicide, his brother to cancer, and a traumatic car accident that left him having to learn to walk again.  He beautifully describes how he was freed from a sense of victimhood through acceptance and surrender. From there he was able to share that experience with others and is now the co-founder of a men's mental health app called tethr.  His team is doing fantastic work to support men and bring about a transformation in how men relate to suffering and how they cultivate wellbeing and resilience. 
EPISODE #69 - This Wonderful Wellness Wednesday – Mental Illness/Health Resources  I want to introduce the men to the newly created resource app designed strictly for men.  Co-Founder of Tethr Addison Brasil says that Tethr is the world’s first peer-to-peer support community app for men only.  He said it helps men with “everyday life stability.”  Did you know that 75% of most suicides are men?  This app has a feature called We F-ck With Feelings.  I also introduce Brandi Renee at #happinessunlocked YouTube page where she discusses several apps you can download to deal with mental health.  Her positive energy encourages you to consider looking into the apps.  Finally, NAMI’s CEO introduces you to his organization National Alliance of Mental Health.  They have resources for Frontline Workers Wellness, Information on Covid-19, Individuals with Mental Health Issues, Family Members and Caregivers, Veterans and Active Duty, Crisis Intervention, Advocate for Change, and Teen and Young Adults (check out teen/young adult audio on this podcast episode).  NAMI is in every state.  In a crisis?  Text NAMI to 741741.  As NAMI states “Because we are in this together, you are not alone.”  #Vote4MentalHealth.
