Deep conversations about life, relationships, and recovery. In this personal storytelling podcast, licensed professional clinician, transformational speaker, and conversation starter, Lisa Lackey, shows you how to take the front seat in your life, to step out where you’ve been hesitant, and to move forward in being all that you and others have told you that you can’t be.

All you have to do is be willing to show up in your own life the best you can, and come on in to join the conversation.

Mark Sanders is someone whose work and contribution to the mental health field I have admired from afar for many, many, many years. 

Mark is an international speaker, trainer and consultant in the behavioral health field. He's authored five books and has been a  champion in the addiction field, speaking out and normalizing the needs that we have as people, period, and specifically in the Black community to de-stigmatize mental health.

One thing I hope that you will look at it is an Online Museum of African-American Addictions, Treatment, and Recovery. This helps us to see that there are other people that have recovered and are doing the kind of work to move their lives forward.

And one of the most unexpected directions our conversation took was talking about the healing power of music -- including rap and hip-hop.
