Speaking with Dr. Mike Friedman, the trio of Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin, and Naomi McPherson explore how the skills of love and acceptance are vital to our mental health journey as we work on the things that we would like to change. The band talks about how being more loving and accepting towards ourselves gives us a much context for understanding and making change. Whether it's exploring and improving our general mental health or understanding our gender identity or sexuality, we need to approach these issues with patience and curiosity rather than harshness and critique, leading to a more virtuous cycle in which we can work on making necessary changes and build an affirming community around us.
