Overcoming Childhood Trauma and Mental Breakdowns by Embracing Vulnerability, Neuroplasticity, Control and Perspective: Miguel Olave
Miguel Olave is a successful sales person, but deep down he had unaddressed trauma that at one point led to a suicide attempt and then a mental breakdown. As a Latino man, he was taught that acknowledging mental illness was a sign of weakness, but because of support systems at work, like his employer's EAP, he sought help that eventually led him to open up about mental health to others online. Exposing his vulnerability drew others to him and now, he seeks to change the world's mindset about mental health while also helping people brand themselves. Because as he has learned, people want to hire you first, not necessarily the services you provide.
