If you’ve struggled with mental health, you’ve probably heard the phrase, “It’s ok to not be okay,” but have you ever wondered what that truly means?
I’m this episode, I’m joined by Erik DaRosa, known by friends and clients as “Yoda,” he is an inspirational speaker and the Founder and Co-host of the podcast From Survivor to Thriver.
Erik is a guy who has truly struggled with anxiety and knows that life is a journey that won’t always be smooth. Each week, he and his co-host Marc Fernandes tackle different mental health topics through honest and relatable "kitchen table" conversations with real people who are helping to shatter mental health stigmas and find their voices. He aims to normalize discussions around mental health topics and remind his audience they are not alone, there is strength in community, and "it's perfectly ok to not always be ok."
We dive deep into that topic, and also cover Erik’s story of growing without support. Struggling with intrusive thoughts, OCD, and panic attacks, and the process he went through to get better. He also shares how he’s helping others improve their mental health, and offers some great life-changing advice.
