From the young age of thirteen, Juan Acosta started his mental health advocacy for kids at the intersection of the LGBTQ+ and Latinx communities. Now a fully-fledged mental health advocate and contributor to the new book from Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, CHANNEL KINDNESS, Juan continues his fight for equality, awareness, and rights for marginalized youth. Join Dr. Alfiee and Juan as they discuss the stigma of mental illness in Latinx communities, what inspired him to begin his mental health advocacy, and the biggest challenges he has had to overcome in his journey! KEY POINTS / MAIN TAKEAWAYS: Thriving at the intersection of the LGBTQ+ and Latinx communities. The driving force behind Juan’s mental health advocacy. What can children and parents do when dealing with bullying? How to have intentional conversations about mental health. About the Channel Kindness project and book. The struggles and pressures of mental health advocacy. How to practice self-care and ground yourself. The power of owning your truth. What to do when you’re dealing with mental health concerns.   QUOTABLES: “There's so much more to one person's identity than just one thing. We all have different layers to ourselves that we need to address and I feel like that's something that needs to be addressed within the mental health system.” “I am more than one moment. And for me, that means I am more than one moment of success and I am more than one moment of me feeling unwell or feeling like I failed at something. So I am more than the success and I am more than any failure that I could ever undergo because there's so much more to it.” “I'm going to go after what I set myself out to do regardless of those who will oppose it, regardless of those who like it or not, because this is my truth. And when you own your truth, that's what will propel you to those heights.”   PRODUCTS / RESOURCES: Follow Juan Acosta on social media: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/juanacosta__/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/JUANACOSTA__ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/acostajuann/about/ Visit Juan Acosta’s website at https://www.juanacostaofficial.com/ Visit the Channel Kindness website at https://www.channelkindness.org/ Get your copy of the CHANNEL KINDNESS book here: https://www.channelkindness.org/book/   Like what you're hearing?
