On August 4th, 2013, I walked myself into a psychiatric hospital, but unlike the work day before, it was to check myself in. As a patient.

After I recovered, I decided I could not keep my experience a secret. And something remarkable started happening.

As I came out about my mental health, more and more coworkers & colleagues started coming out to me about their own struggles.

Self Disclosure is a new show about struggle and finding the path to heal ourselves. Because talking about it really helps.
