In this episode, host Bryan Piatt talks to Dr. Chad Puffer about ways to maneuver the experience of a panic attack.

Puffer is a child and adolescent psychiatrist, and the medical director for child and adolescent services in southern Minnesota for PrairieCare.

Puffer opens up about struggling with panic attacks in medical school and shares what helped him. He also talks about what's happening in our bodies when we experience a panic attack, the difference between a panic attack and panic disorder, and helping men be vulnerable about their mental health.

As always, take what serves you—and leave the rest.
