32: Mental Health as Spiritual Beings with Dr. Deb Part 1

Spirituality, What?

Deb Mahan is the Executive Director of Gazette Charities Foundation, an affiliate of The Anschutz Foundation serving El Paso and Teller counties. She has been in Colorado Springs 30 years, and served on many boards and commissions. She has spent time in both the non-profit and business sectors throughout her career, and loves how the two, together, have influenced her work in philanthropy. With a background in neuropsychology, she also convenes the Colorado Mental Health Consortium, a group of 50 individuals state-wide advocating for mental health/behavioral legislation. 
Join us as we explore Deb’s fascinating journey to Neuropsychology and her deep curiosity about human behavior. Dive into powerful topics like Big T vs. little t trauma, insights from Gabor Maté, and the transformative power of the pause, the breath, and the noticing.
We’ll also delve into mental health as an endemic human experience, Deb’s personal encounters with mental health, and how control can be a response to trauma. Plus, discover the role of mindfulness in healing and growth.
You won’t want to miss this enriching conversation that touches the heart and mind. Tune in now!
