From Living in Silence to Living Out Loud

Did you know that one in five people live with a mental illness in the United States? I am one of these people.

I’m Talli Dolge and I could not be more excited to bring you our new mental health and wellness podcast with KSAT, called From Living In Silence to Living Out Loud.

Each month, starting in January 2023, we will be bringing together community leaders, experts and people who are living every day with a mental illness to discuss various mental health and wellness topics.

This podcast will continue to open the conversation surrounding a topic that has been kept a secret for far too long.

Together we will explore these brave, resilient and life-changing stories… and, bonus, we will be answering your questions as they pertain to each episode. Do you have a question or topic you would like to be addressed? Let us know here.

You can find us on all podcast platforms, KSAT’s YouTube channel, and KSAT+, the free streaming app for Smart TVs.

We can’t wait to have you join us!
