Don’t Stop Fighting | A Conversation with JR Redmond

🎧 About the Episode:

In this episode, we're honored to welcome JR Redmond, a former American football running back in the NFL and founder of the JR Redmond Silverback Foundation. JR won Super Bowl XXXVI as a member of the Patriots over the St. Louis Rams. Five years into retirement, JR battled depression and was eventually diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder with Psychosis, Posttraumatic stress disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, Post-concussion Syndrome, and Chronic Pain Syndrome. The next phase of his life was challenging as JR was faced with homelessness, family issues, and lost valuable possessions due to the diagnosis. Finding treatment soon after allowed him to understand how to improve daily life.

Julia and JR delve into themes of resilience, mental health, and the journey to recovery. Gain a deeper understanding of JR's experiences, lessons learned, and the profound impact of his foundation, the J.R. Redmond Silverback Foundation. This foundation is rooted in the life JR experienced prior to treatment, and the valuable lessons learned, challenges faced, and accolades earned since then. Show your support for JR and his impactful endeavors by liking, sharing, and leaving a comment below.
