Why more emphasis needs to be placed on preventative services as opposed to reactive services in mental health  The different ways in which anxiety can manifest and negatively impact people’s lives The importance of understanding there is no one-size-fits-all approach to addressing mental illness  Nick Bracks is an actor, advocate for mental health, and author of Move Your Mind: How to Build a Healthy Mindset for Life. In today’s episode, he shares key aspects of his youth and adult life that led him to where he is today.
