Introducing The Darkest Corner Podcast

Submit your Questions/Stories: Darkest Corner Questions

Welcome to The Darkest Corner podcast, a safe place.  Darkest Corner is a talk show centered around living with mental illness; Depression, Anxiety, Personality Disorders, ADD/ADHD, and more.  It's host is me, Andrew Risenhoover, and I have dealt with mental illness for many years.  The idea behind this show is to discuss what it's like to live every day with the weight of mental illness on your shoulders, and to hopefully help others deal with their own by offering advice, and help, where ever we can.  The state of this country in its resources given to those of us suffering with mental illness is deplorable, so any help we can find the better.  I have found the greatest solace from those whom also deal with mental illness regularly.  I hope to bring that to you here.
