Erik DaRosa and Marc Fernandes, two men who are candid and vulnerable about their own mental health struggles, are upending the front-end of the mental health space. Each week, they 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. We aim to normalize discussions around mental health topics and remind our audience they are not alone, there is strength in community and "it's perfectly ok to not always be ok."
