ShellyDoc ,

Super Fan!

Eli is more than a dude… he’s a man on a mission to de-stigmatize mental health to men; & he’s doing an AWESOME job! His line-up of guests is broad & diverse and the conversations are engaging as he dares to “ask what we’re all thinking but too scared to ask.” So glad that he’s at the forefront of encouraging men to enter the dialogue of mental health. Keep up the great work🤗😁👍🏾
