In this episode we unpack the stigma around therapy and its hidden yet prominent place in modern society. We discuss our personal stories, how this stigma affects Gen-Z’s Mental Health Crisis and the importance of trigger warnings and hotlines. The internal conflict that we face from this has filled us with negativity but also has empowered us to fight for societal change. The hardest part about internalized stigmas and phobias is the fight against it starts with resolving the conflicts within ourselves and our society. The stigma around therapy affects so many of us and it is up to ALL of us to fight it. And to all of our gen-zers, mental health matters. Say it out loud and say it again. Mental. Health. Matters.
We’re all struggling right now so from us to you, please take care of yourself!!
