"We are hardwired to connect with others, it's what gives purpose and meaning to our lives and without it there is suffering."
-Brene Brown

My name is Josh Putnam and I am passionate about mental health and connection.

Most of my life I have struggled with anxiety and depression. About 7 years ago I set off on a journey to understand mental health and learn how to heal it. I have learned so much over that time and I have grown a lot. My goal was to learn the “secret” of mental health and then share it with the world. And while I have learned many things that help and I have improved a lot, and while I want to share those things, one of the most impactful lessons I have learned from this experience is the importance of connection. And the importance of vulnerability.

So instead of making a blog and a podcast to tell people what to do to heal, for right now I have decided to use these outlets to connect. To share. Honestly and vulnerably. And maybe we can help each other simply by connecting.
