Episode 026: “Living Centered and Finding Hope”
Featuring Jamie Tworkowski
For today’s episode, Miles is joined by New York Times best-selling author, speaker, and founder of To Write Love on Her Arms, Jamie Tworkowski. Jamie has dedicated his life’s work to presenting hope and help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide.
In this interview, Miles and Jamie talk about their shared desire to normalize and destigmatize the conversation around mental health. Along the way, they discuss the benefit and need of doing their own individual emotional wellness work as they lead organizations and missions dedicated to doing the same. Join us for a conversation that we hope normalizes asking for help, equips you to help the people in your life who might be struggling, and invites you to pursue the wholeness you deserve.
