    Content warning: This episode discusses an abusive relationship and mentions assault. 

    It's CMHA's Mental Health Week this week, and the theme this year is empathy. So, hosts Beki & Olivia thought it would be fitting to record an episode on the topic!

    You'll hear them discuss what empathy really is, why there's a bit of an anti-empathy movement, and what empathy misses are.

    In this episode hosts, Beki and Olivia, discuss something that many of us do without even thinking - judging others. 

    You’ll hear why it’s something so common, but also why judging others can be harmful to others as well as ourselves. From chatting about how our judgements come from deep down inside us to empathy being the antidote to judgement, this is an episode you don’t want to miss!

    Episode 39 focuses on the topic of humour! Beki and Olivia discuss ways that humour can be supportive for us, but also can be a way of us avoiding what’s going on for us.   You’ll hear how some forms of humour and laughter can create good relationships, connection, and open perspectives. But also other forms of humour can be a way of shutting down vulnerability or not dealing with things.   Check out this episode to hear the hosts share how they use humour, and how we can be aware of the type of humour we're using.
