Character’s Mental Health

Let’s get real:
That punch to the head…
That divorce…
That violence…
That abuse…
All have consequences on character.

Jon and Juliet talk about trauma and what it means to characters. We love it when the cowboy gets punched on the nose but gets right back on his horse. But have you ever been punched on the nose?

Links and Things Mentioned in the Show:

Jon mentioned Sarah Zarr’s very good podcast: This Creative Life. Especially episode 48: Corey Ann Haydu & Adult Children of Alcoholics.

Another podcast about mental health that Jon recommends is The Mental Illness Happy Hour with Paul Gilmartin.
