It’s no mystery that we’ve all been going through some really hard times since March 2020. Not only did the pandemic change the way we work, but also how we do literally everything else. And on top of that, each of us has our own life struggles to handle. Whether that’s money, family problems, illness, or even our personal goals.

As a result, we’ve seen a number of people come out and express their challenges with mental health issues. And make no mistake, this includes those who we’d normally think are both physically and mentally tough.

Even though the pandemic has completely made things worse, mental health issues are simply part of life. At some point, we all experience some sort of mental illness or anxiety disorder. Yet most people still avoid talking about it. Why? Because it’s often regarded as a weakness instead of a situation we need to deal with.

Today, however, you’ll learn that you're not alone. Luis shares his life-long struggles with mental health issues that started way back in middle school, but that still persist to this date. He shares the red flags and symptoms he suffers from, the things he’s implemented to help him handle the situation, and the resources he’s been using and heard good things about that can help you too.
