Host Morra Aarons-Mele is on a mission to reframe how we think about anxiety and mental health in the workplace. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S. We desperately need better models for leadership and a more holistic view of mental health. Our culture tells those of us who suffer from anxiety and depression that we can’t succeed but we tell a different story — without sugarcoating the tough stuff. We feature stories from people who’ve been there and experts who can help you thrive.

Thank you!

Thank you for this podcast! Just like Arvin - it took me a long time, 38 years to realize that the level of anxiety I felt differed from that of others around me. The things that made me awesome at work and in life were also the same things that crippled me. I have been a leader and aspiring to be a senior leader one day and having the awareness will help but hearing from successful people that are dealing with similar situations/feelings has been enlightening.

Informative and Relevant!

What a great find! As leaders we must be equipped to effectively deal with the growing anxieties faced internally and externally—in self and in others. Thank you for dealing with such substantive and real topics.
