With the talented @derekkettela, shooting earlier this week for the Kevin Love Fund.
Meeting Derek this past summer, I quickly realized we had a common bond. Our initial conversations centered around my on court panic attack last spring, which led into Derek sharing his personal story with me. I was honored that he felt comfortable enough to tell me about his own experiences with panic attacks, as I know how difficult it is to publicly share your own inner struggles.
I hope that by publicly discussing mental health and wellness, you'll understand that there is no shame, nor should there be embarrassment, in openly talking about your struggles with someone you trust, and then taking next steps to seek help.
I’m honored to have Derek on my team at the beginning of this journey. These stories establish community and continue to change the conversation surrounding mental health+wellness.
