More Than You See 2.07 – Community and Self-Advocacy in Parenting

Parenting, pregnancy, postpartum and more. 

This week join me for a follow up from last week’s episode (the roundtable conversation with my dear friends, Erin Stegeman, Cecilia Tripp, and Christy Elder Holmes about their experience with postpartum, mental health, and parenting). I dive into my own observations about being a mom and different styles of parenting in different parts of the world. I also discuss different resources for new moms and my thoughts about the importance of advocating for yourself, today and every day.

I also mentioned on the episode that I would LOVE for you to take a quiz and give me feedback about the podcast.

Every week join me, Deborah Lee Smith actor, filmmaker, mental health advocate for a conversation on mental health like you’ve never heard before. My platform, More Than You See is dedicated to exploring nontraditional mental health resources to help you build your own emotional wellness toolkit.

I absolutely discuss therapy, the importance of medication, and highlight organizations around the world devoted to destigmatizing mental health, but I also focus on books, personal practices, podcasts, TED Talks etc, because here’s the thing… I’m not a licensed practitioner or therapist. I’m just a woman exploring my own journey with mental health and sharing my experiences and the experiences of the community with you, the listener. Join me for a weekly conversation every Monday that will be sure to bring a smile to your face and help you feel a little less alone. Because we’re all More Than You See.

Hi there! I'm an actor, producer, and writer who is devoted to storytelling and mental health awareness. After struggling through my own mental health, I found that non-traditional resources, like the ones we explore on More Than You See, helped me immensely get through my dark times. Thus, this website and podcast were born! I look forward to helping you gain agency over your mental health journey as you build your own toolkit of resources, tips, and ideas. Because you never know what might help pull you out of the darkness, and we are all More Than You See.
