Today I interviewed Ross Szabo for The Mighty. Ross is one of the "OG" mental health advocates and pretty much helped shape how mental health is thought of in the United States. This is the second time I’ve interviewed Ross (here's the first time) but I felt like we were able to dive deeper into his views on mental health education and programs. Although Ross sees a lot of issues with current implementations he does offer practical and effective solutions. I also liked his response when I asked “what makes a bad mental health advocate?” Ross is a hell of a nice guy who gives a lot back to the community. I’m certain him and I will work together again in the near future.
