Mental health is good health
Dive into the world of mental health issues with Mrs. Antanette Anderson.
A good while back in my life as full time photographer I met Antanette as a client about to be married. I became their wedding photographer during this time.
Years passed and every so often we would somehow come in contact with each other. It wasnt until I realized that my mental health was being tested that I decided to relaunch the podcast but kicking it off with a discussion on mental health.
Not knowing fully at the time that Antanette had good experience in the matter I began a search for my next guest to kick things off.
To my surprise who should come up… none other than antanette of A.S Anderson Consultancy Services, Mental Health and Wellness.
Well this was a no brainer, and I am proud and excited to begin Session 1 of our mental health talks.
