S1 E1 Schizophrenia And The City

Check up on your friends. Michelle Hammer from Schizophrenic.NYC and Cecilia McGough from Students With Psychosis are back and sitting back-to-back in this week’s episode practicing deep listening. When was the last time someone gave you the space to share without listening for a response? Deep listening is the practice of listening to someone without interruption from vocal or visual cues allowing for a safe space to share and introspection. Michelle and Cecilia discuss the stress of COVID and current life in New York City with housing. Tune in each week to follow these schizophrenic entrepreneurs humanize the experience of living with schizophrenia. We are more than our diagnosis.
