Sep 12 2022 • 35 mins

Have you ever said you were ok when you were hurting?   At some point, we have all said we were ok when something wasn’t right. It is the next thing we do after that matters. Did we continue lying to ourselves, or did we let someone know or get help?   Today we are talking with Erik DaRosa and Marc Fernandes, who have different mental health stories. Still, they both found relief in finding a way through it together. During the peak of the pandemic, they launched the podcast From Survivor to Thriver to help lower the stigma around mental health so everyone can feel they have the confidence to say, “I am not ok.”  Key Topics: ·     The beginning (01:51) ·     Normalizing Conversations around mental health (07:46) ·     Dealing with the capacity issue in the system to get treatment (12:40) ·     What doors did having a podcast open up (17:41) ·     What advice would you give to open up doors beyond the podcast (21:52) ·     What makes The Scared Cycle the charity of choice today (28:04) Website link: https://www.buzzsprout.com/2043860?fbclid=IwAR3YKNnW-1rGiAQ3Yz6P4iOdoaBOyJY-Ia9FG2NlTLbZ440o-3EUyjuKdKg (From Survivor to Thriver) Podcast Links: ·     https://www.buzzsprout.com/2043860?fbclid=IwAR3YKNnW-1rGiAQ3Yz6P4iOdoaBOyJY-Ia9FG2NlTLbZ440o-3EUyjuKdKg (Apple) ·     https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5idXp6c3Byb3V0LmNvbS8yMDQzODYwLnJzcw== (Google) ·     https://open.spotify.com/show/4Ki6AuWRD57kEVcSuFVwQK (Spotify) Charity: https://thesacredcycle.org/ (The Scared Cycle) Donation: Make a https://thesacredcycle.org/donate/ (donation) Social Links ·     https://www.linkedin.com/company/from-survivor-to-thriver/?viewAsMember=true (LinkedIn) ·     https://www.facebook.com/brushcreekthrivers/ (Facebook) ·     https://www.instagram.com/brushcreekthrivers/ (Instagram) Thanks for Listening!
