STATE of MIND is hosted by Debra Sloss, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and features intimate conversations about mental health and wellness here on the central coast of California. Shows air monthly, on the first Sunday of the month from 6-7 PM. In each show, guests share their very personal stories and their clinical expertise on a specific mental health topic. So join us for new understandings, seeds of hope and learn about local resources. This is a unique opportunity to hear the hard-earned wisdom that only comes from lived experience.

We at STATE of MIND believe that in airing these stories we bring to light the complexity of the human experience, we help reduce stigma, provide important education and hope to improve access to care and support. We also hope that doing so will lead to changing attitudes, more compassion and improved policy making.

To sum it up…. we’re trying to help our world become a little more humane, one remarkable story of recovery at a time!
