Overcoming Adversity

Season 2 Episode 209 | 56m 46s

We’re living in an era where optimism, inspiration and hope are rare. The “sledgehammer effect,” wrought by a historic number of overlapping crises, has helped spawn a mental health epidemic marked by surging incidence of depression, suicide and addiction. This show will profile those who have overcome adversity and trauma through grit, resilience and determination.
