Episode 013: Mental Health Challenges of a Caregiver with Brenda Agnew

Jan Marin, your host, welcomes Brenda Agnew to today’s episode. She is the client liaison at Gluckstein Lawyers, a former client, who offers clients a really unique perspective and support since she has been in the shoes herself. Brenda is the proud mother of two boys, Chase and Maclain. Her son Maclain has severe Cerebral Palsy and profound hearing loss as a result of a condition known as Kernicterus, a brain injury that results from untreated jaundice.

Today, Brenda and Jan talk about mental health, a topic that has brought attention in the past recent years but it is still quite difficult for some people to acknowledge support or address. Specifically, Brenda and Jan are discussing mental health challenges that can arise for caregivers.
