CONVERSATIONS BLOG

Welcome!

We are so happy to have you join us!

I’m Diana, the founder and mental health educator of Our Conversations Column and Podcast. 

Let me introduce my good friend, Jan, our dedicated writer, editor and also, a mental health educator.

 Together, we created this column and blog series because we are parents with lived experience, that is, as parents 

we have seen our loved ones – our family members and our close friends - as well as our co-workers 

and neighbors, suffer from the ​anguish and havoc​ that mental illness inflicts.

Real People. Real Stories.


During this pandemic, social distancing has been recommended and even mandated -- and has not been our choice. Circumstances are beyond our control. 


When will life return to normal, or at the very least, 

a new normal?

DIANA'S eBOOK - FREE - CLICK HERE!

"It tells the story of my son and his journey from deep despair during years of being bullied to thriving beyond anything we could have imagined.

It conveys the heartache, and sacrifices that were made to save his life, and the determination, fearlessness, and love we needed to summon to create a space for his healing."

Diana Kendros

This family went from tragedy to triumph and the 

story needs to be heard by everyone.

"The story of Diana's family is one of struggle, courage, and hard-won triumph. I believe anyone involved with school-age children would benefit from hearing about this family’s determination to develop a plan that would enable their son to emerge as the confident, talented, and the loving young man that he is.” 

Jean Gaede | Faculty Interlochen Center for the Arts

Conversations Podcast takes us on a dramatic journey through compelling, first hand accounts, into understanding how mental health challenges affect all of us in every area of life, including our families, and society as a whole.
