Dr. Chloe Carmichael joins the podcast this week to help us explore the many benefits of free speech. We know the first amendment is important because it’s a fundamental human right that benefits society as a whole, but did you know that free speech may improve your mental health as well? Dr. Carmichael makes the case that engaging in open dialogue may reduce your anxiety and depression, leading to overall wellness and personal growth.
