In our season finale on anxiety and depression, Karl and Filip ask Jamie what the best ways are to reach out to others who are struggling. We learn ways to ask friends how they’re really doing, and to empathize—not sympathize—with those who are hurting. To close the conversation, Jamie also gives us a gold mine to dig into in the form of some of her favorite book resources (hint: you can see the list below).
