Brent Williams joins us in studio all the way from New Zealand to talk about his beautiful, groundbreaking and inspiring graphic memoir: Out Of The Woods. Brent shares his journey with depression and anxiety as well as the struggles and lessons learned from sharing his story and writing this book. The book itself contains strategies and techniques to deal with anxiety and depression as well as capturing depression in a way that readers can relate to and understand. We talk finding the right therapist, the power of nature, elements of recovery, family, strength, friendship and so much more.
