Introduction: Welcome back to another insightful episode of the F.I.T. in Faith Podcast. I’m your host, Tamra Andress, and today, we have a deeply meaningful conversation ahead. Our special guest, Ryan Griffis, known as “Mr. Griffis,” brings a unique perspective to the forefront as we delve into the intricate topic of mental health within the context of the military.
As a coach, I often find myself wearing multiple hats. While my primary focus is business coaching, I’ve realized that, at times, life coaching becomes an integral part of the journey, which is more what Ryan does. There’s a common thread that ties effectiveness in business with one’s ability to activate their identity. Understanding who you are fundamentally lays the foundation for achieving success in various aspects of life.
Ryan Griffis enters the conversation with his background as a service member. He doesn’t claim to be a therapist, and this fact adds a layer of complexity to his role. He shares his initial fears about the responsibility that came with receiving countless messages from individuals grappling with their mental health issues, including thoughts of suicide, nightmares, and the challenges faced by their spouses.
Ryan’s journey into this crucial advocacy wasn’t always smooth. He openly shares his early apprehensions and the emotional toll of reading these heartfelt messages from fellow soldiers and service members. These experiences made him acutely aware of the pervasive pain and suffering that many endure silently. It was a wake-up call, a moment of reckoning.
Despite not being a therapist, Ryan has made a profound impact. His journey of seeking help for himself equipped him with a toolbox of resources and strategies to offer to others. He realized that some people find it easier to open up to a stranger on social media than to their own family and friends. Ryan’s transparency, coupled with his willingness to share what worked for him, has become a beacon of hope for many.
The conversation also touches on the challenges faced by military spouses. They often grapple with the complexities of their partners’ mental health while dealing with their own fears and concerns. Ryan’s insights and resources extend beyond service members to offer support and understanding to these unsung heroes.
Ryan Griffis’ journey from service member to mental health advocate is nothing short of inspiring. His commitment to being a beacon of light for those facing mental health challenges within and outside the military is unwavering. As he shares his experiences, we gain a deeper understanding of the complexities surrounding mental health and the importance of seeking help.
This episode of the F.I.T. in Faith Podcast reminds us that mental health knows no boundaries. It’s a universal concern, and we all play a role in supporting those who may be struggling. We hope Ryan’s story and insights inspire you to reach out to others, offer help when needed, and remember that you’re never alone in your journey toward better mental health.
