The Lucas Rockwood Show

Mark Lukach's wife spent nearly two months in total in psychiatric wards during three different bipolar episodes. Mental illness appeared seemingly out of nowhere with suicidal thoughts, delusions, and dangerous behavior. While this story sounds extreme, I promise that someone you know and care about is suffering right now, as well. That being said, there's a good chance you can help.

On this week's show, we'll look closely at mental illness, which affects one in every four households today. My hope is that this family's story will inspire you to find the courage to deal with the darkness.  

Listen & Learn:

  • Why suicide is a huge (and growing) problem all over the world
  • Medication vs. natural solutions—what's best?
  • Why talking and listening will always be important
  • How to remove the stigma of mental illness and get help
