Kevin Fischer: Everybody vs. Stigma

Kevin Fischer, Executive Director of the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) — Michigan Chapter, joins us to talk about the stigma around seeking mental health help. After his son died by suicide, Kevin experienced his own mental health crises. That led him to NAMI first for resources, then as a volunteer and eventually as its leader. He uses his story to help others break the stigma of mental illness. “It’s my passion. It’s needed in every community, especially communities of color, and so it’s my life’s work.” Session will include Drop 5 weekly check-in for our virtual weight-loss community.
