Join Mike Vosters and Nicole Cardoza, co-founders of the Mental Health League, for a conversation about how social isolation fuels loneliness in an already lonely society, and how we can use the psychology of sports to build support teams that carry us across the finish line – and beyond – as we transition into post COVID-19 life.

Acerca de Ask the Advocates
Millions and millions of people around the world live with mental illness, but their stories are not all the same. They come from different places, cultures, communities and countries. They like different things, have different kinds of friends, and cope with their symptoms in different ways. When talking about mental health, it's important that we highlight these differences and explore how they shape our experiences. Mental health narratives should be as diverse and unique as we are.
Ask the Advocates is an ongoing Q&A series with outspoken mental health sufferers from around the world. Guests will open up about their experiences living with a wide range of conditions and symptoms, and answer your questions about pain, growth, healing, treatment and more. Before each episode, spend some time learning about the scheduled guest and come prepared with questions that are relevant to what they've been through.
