On this week’s BONUS episode, I sat down with Governor Phil Murphy to discuss how he sees the government’s responsibility to address the mental health challenges that face both my home state of New Jersey and the country as a whole. Governor Murphy touches on why he decided to sign a budget earlier this week that would restore a New Jersey school mental health program, and towards the end of the episode, he touches on how the pandemic has affected him both as a prominent political leader and as a person.
I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to speak with Governor Murphy and share our conversation with you all. His leadership during these unprecedented times has made me proud to be from New Jersey, and his willingness to allocate 15 minutes for my podcast speaks volumes about how much he cares about mental health.
