Coach-Mentors Is Featured Guest on Transformational Talk Radio’s ‘Recovery Recharged’ show
May 2021, Coach-Mentor’s Executive Director Jeff Brain, MA, CTS was invited to be a guest on the Recovery Recharged Radio podcast, hosted by Ellen Stewart and broadcast on Transformational Talk Radio. Known for its positive and diverse programming. Transformational Talk Radio has an audience of 5 million listeners.
The focus of the conversation was “Building Back Better” – how the pandemic has helped build our emotional muscle, providing the opportunity to re-emerge from a time of challenge with renewed hope, optimism, and strength.
While acknowledging the challenges we have all faced during the pandemic, Ellen, Jeff, and talk show host Dr. Pat Bacilli focused on specific advantages of the “lock-down” experience and identified areas of growth in four distinct areas of our lives: Family & Relationships, Work, School and Social/Interpersonal. Jeff specifically spoke to the supports available to those who are struggling to re-emerge, and the important role that coaching and mentoring can play. Jeff shared several examples of how Coach-Mentors has played a pivotal role in supporting adolescents, young adults, and adults with mental illness and co-occurring disorders during the pandemic, and now that we are trying to return to “normal”.
