In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor is joined by Dr. Ravi Shah. Ravi is a chief innovation officer and an assistant professor at Columbia university's department of psychiatry. We discuss digital mental health and managing psychopharmaceutical care for the treatment of depression. Columbia Psychiatry has developed an app called Pathways with an algorithm for treating depression.

Together Graham and Ravi discuss the impact of depression, its causes, the new Pathways App, and the app’s uses to empower practitioners and patients to better address their anti-depressant medication. With this Pathways App, we believe the vast majority of people with depression can get much better than they’re already doing.
Dr. Graham Taylor is joined by Dr. Stephanie Harris. Stephanie is a licensed psychologist and certified healing touch practitioner with close to 20 years of clinical experience. Her work integrates psychological theory and techniques with mind-body medicine, with the therapeutic goal of whole-person healing.

We discuss the training and certification of a Healing Touch Practitioner and integrating holistic healing into psychology. Healing touch and whole-person healing communicates with the parasympathetic nervous system, but it’s beyond that. There’s a spiritual essence of deep health that can be so powerful.
We're dealing with a public health crisis. Historically, it's been criminalized socially. It's been stigmatized, and personally, there is a shame and social isolation that surrounds it. This crisis is the prevalence of overdose and overdose deaths occurring within our country.

In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Shannon Mace to talk with us about this crisis and a new program initiated by the CDC and administered by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing. Shannon is a senior advisor at the National Council for Mental Wellbeing with over 12 years of multidisciplinary experience in the fields of public health, behavioral, health, and poverty. At the national council, Shannon leads projects focused on improving care for those with substance use disorders.
Anger is a normal and even healthy emotion, but it's important to deal with it positively. Uncontrolled anger can take a toll, both on our health and our relationships, but recognizing one's anger and having the courage to lean into it and face it, and then try to heal it is easier said than done. In today’s episode, Dr. Graham Taylor is joined by Dr. Michele Haley, founder of TogetherWell . Michele has nearly two decades of experience in a variety of roles including the therapist, adjunct professor researcher, community programmer, and case manager.
