Hi, I'm Leif E. Greenz and I often struggle with being alive.
I am dedicated to facilitating candid discussions of mental illness from a patient's perspective. Some of my videos are serious and some are comedic, but they all carry the same message: you are neither flawed nor alone.
This silly video outlines 50 of my favorite things to do instead of dying. These tools regularly help me fight through the despair and hopelessness inherent in PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Living with a serious mental illness certainly isn't easy, but we can learn to tolerate it and maybe even have some fun in the process.
If you are currently feeling suicidal, please reach out to someone you trust. If it's an emergency, I implore you to contact a medical professional immediately. We need you here.
This video is a bit of a departure from what I've been posting, i.e. it's a lot sillier. Discussions of mental illness and healing don't always have to be clinical and miserable. Sometimes it's good to loosen our grips and laugh about the mess we're in.
Thanks for watching! What do you do when you're down? Let me know in the comments and I'll be sure to get back to you.
