Overcoming the mental health stigma with Maurice Benard
Do you struggle with your emotions? Do you feel that you have a mental health challenge, but you haven t found the courage to ask for help? When it comes to mental health, there is still a stigma that has held many people back from seeking professional help to work on their emotional well-being. My guest this week on Empowerment Radio is on a quest to destigmatize mental health issues.
Actor and author Maurice Benard has been for decades on a journey to overcome his own mental health challenges. Famous for his role as mobster Sonny Corinthos on General Hospital, Maurice never shied away from sharing his struggles with bipolar disorder. In his New York Times bestselling book, Nothing General About It Maurice shares how his mental health issues began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life.
Join Maurice and I on Thursday, August 20th on Empowerment Radio for a fascinating and important conversation that will give anyone who is struggling mentally and emotionally hope and courage to ask for support.
