Episode 350: Seeking Help for Mental Health and Eating Disorders with Laura Cragun

Today my guest is Laura Cragun. She is a mother of 3 young kids, 7, 4 and 2 years old. She has been through a residential treatment center in the last year for her severe depression and suicidal idealization. Then a few months later, she went to an eating disorder recovery outpatient program. All of this has been so hard on her family but she has learned so much and is much happier and whole. She also coaches and teaches Christian women how to regain their life back after years of dieting and struggling with body image and instead give it back to themselves and God through Intuitive Eating, mindset skills and most importantly, through Christ.
