Al Levin – Depression and Mental Health Support, Resource and Recovery
Jeremy Quinby has a conversation with Al Levin, host of the podcast The Depression Files about his passion for helping people understand depression and mental health challenges and devoted much of his time over the past five years to building resources and supporting those in his orbit get the help they need.
As a high school assistant principal with 4 young children of his own, he found himself in a harrowing downward spiral that made him consider taking his own life. Unlike many men, he confided in friends, family, colleagues and health professionals to get the help and support he needed.
Al shares his story, what his first signs were, the kind of help he received, what recovery looked like for him, and the resource he continues to explore through this podcast.
