Safe Space Radio: Asking for Help

Airs Thursday, August 15, 2019, at 6 p.m. This episode explores why it's so hard to admit when we need something from another person, and the surprising effects that sharing our vulnerability can have on our mental health. Through stories we look at how shame and stigma can prevent us from asking for what we need; why we tend to underestimate the generosity of others; and how asking can make us feel seen in both welcome and uncomfortable ways. Finally, we address the complicated experience of wanting to help to someone who can't or won't ask for it.
