Guest: Dena Coukoulis, Viral Video Filmmaker
What up, Get Up Nation? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of The Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with Adam Greenberg, former Major League Baseball Player and CEO of www.lurongliving.com! Episode 15 features Dena Coukoulis. As Dena strived to help her son cope with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder associated with his military service in the Marine Corps during the Global War on Terror, she didn’t expect a brief family video posted on Facebook to go viral. As people enjoyed her family video more than 1 million times, Dena quickly recognized her family’s experience had deep roots in the American consciousness. Since then, Dena committed herself to creating a world of mental health fluency, compassion, and empowerment for those who are overcoming the challenges associated with traumatic stress. She’s in the process of writing a children’s book and regularly raises awareness about the importance of mental health through the powerful, ineffable core connections that exist between animals and people. These are the type of potent, core connections that can help bring men and women great comfort during their process of transitioning from Post-Traumatic Stress to Post-Traumatic Growth.
Thank you, Dena, for being a guest on the Get Up Nation Podcast!
