Did you know that you can now text your therapist? For the longest time, talking about therapy has been considered taboo, but we’re here to break down that stigma, as a part of our ongoing series on mental health.
After hearing from our guests, we hope you’ll feel more comfortable speaking about therapy as well! First up, let’s hear from two mental health experts, Haley Jakobson and Daniel Olavarria, who have some strong opinions on when and if Gen Z should be using digital therapy. Later on, you’ll hear from Dr. Elizabeth Turk-Karan who is a clinical psychologist at the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety at The University of Pennsylvania. So let’s get this convo started about therapy: the good, the bad and everything in between.
