Episode 29 - No One Signs Your Cast
Treatment for mental health issues rarely receives the same level of community support that a more visible struggle, like major surgery, does. But our friend, Shay, is out to change that.
A straight male who received treatment for anorexia, Shay experienced push back from some of his closest friends when he made the choice to seek professional help. Yet, his friends were eager to lend sympathy when he fractured an ankle... What gives!?
We are all about shifting this conversation along with Shay and cannot wait for you to hear more of his story.
Shay lives in Colorado with his family. An avid learner and science nerd, Shay loves to read about topics of interest and share them with his wife, who listens patiently. In his spare time, Shay likes to hunt, fish, hike, fly airplanes, travel and scuba dive. Shay shares his story from the perspective of managing both physical and mental health issues, including an eating disorder. Shay hopes that telling his story will give others hope that recovery and a great life after illness are possible.
