Speak Your Mind
Mental health issues affect everyone. Shouldn't you know more? Now is the time to speak your mind and get the information you need. Join professional psychologist and host Dr. Carolyn Phelps each week as Speak Your Mind starts the conversation on mental health issues.
Expert Advice; Confidential Communication
Each Thursday, a panel of mental health professionals discuss the week's topic and help answer viewer questions live from the WDSE•WRPT studio. Questions can be phoned-in, text and emailed. Calls will be answered by a confidential team that will relay your question to Dr. Phelps. So feel free to ask the questions you've always wanted to ask and hear the reply in the comfort of your own home.
