Mind in Pieces

Storytelling Podcasts

Real teens. Real talk. Real sh*t. People love to speculate about teenagers and what goes on inside their minds. As young adults, we all face our own demons even if it may not appear that way from the outside. In this podcast, I sit down with some of my peers to discuss their personal struggles with mental health, academic pressure, trauma, family issues, substance abuse, self-doubt, and more.
