#8. A conversation about mental health with Dr. Jeff Holguin, PhD.
01:34:21

I am joined in this episode by Dr. Jeff Holguin, PhD; a clinical psychologist and former Coast Guardsman for a far-reaching conversation about mental health, stress, suicide, leadership, and a host of other topics. 

This is a long form discussion that I hope will give you reason to examine your own lifestyle and leadership, and to better recognize signs of distress in members of our Coast Guard family.
