My name is Jody and I am the owner of Brave Wings Trauma-Informed Coaching and Peer Support. I am a trained Coach, a Crisis Responder, a bestselling author, a freelance writer, and editor, and I decided to give podcasting a try about a year back. I have been blessed to speak with such a wide variety of people from different backgrounds, who have been brave enough to come on the show and share their stories of trauma and healing. We have covered a multitude of mental health illnesses, and each time, I find myself learning something new, which I hope I can pass on to you. Thank you for taking the time to listen, and I hope at least one of the episodes hits home with you. I appreciate you all. You can listen to the most recent ten episodes on the player below.

Mental Health Raw and Open Season 2 Ep. 5 A Memorial Tribute for my Dear Friend Penny Hollick
Without a doubt, this is the hardest podcast I have done. I lost a very close friend and mentor in February 2020, and not a day has gone by that I don’t miss and think of her. She was kind, loving, supportive and never judged. She was a beautiful woman who fought valientley but lost her battle with cancer. On this episode, I just wanted to share a piece of her with you all.
Thank you for listening and allowing me to share some of her love to the world.

Mental Health Raw and Open Season 1 Ep. 12 World Suicide Day 2019
Hi and welcome. Today’s show is a solo special for World Suicide Day 2019. I am a three time suicide survivor and sadly, I have a few close friends who lost their battle with mental illness. I appreciate the awareness on this day, however, suicide is not a single day conversation. In order for it to be destigmatized, it needs to be spoken about daily. The word SUICIDE needs to become commonplace. In order to even start to reduce the numbers, we need to speak about it…in schools, in healthcare, in our police forces and military; with our friends, our families, our children, our coworkers, our online friends. Everyone. Don’t be afraid to directly ask the question…”are you feeling suicidal” or “are you having suicidal thoughts?” Those questions WILL NOT instill thoughts of suicide. They will, however, open the door to a possible life-saving conversation. As the saying goes “I would much rather listen to you now than listen to your eulogy.”
