MENTAL HEALTH EXPERT: WHO WE TALKED TO
We have talked about mental health already in this series, but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to speak with Stephanie Ruby. In this webinar from the Okayest Moms Summer Series, we talked to Stephanie Ruby. Stephanie is a professional tweeter—aka a freelance social media strategist. She has worked with clients ranging from national non-profits, Michelin-starred restaurants, nationally broadcasted live television events to her local coffee shop. She is a registered yoga teacher. In her free time, she is a mom to an almost 8 year old. She is bi-polar II—kinda like Kanye. She lives in rural Pennsylvania.
In this webinar, Stephanie talks openly and honestly about her mental health diagnosis, the struggle to find the proper medication and how all of this adds to her view of motherhood. We were so incredibly grateful to Stephanie for her vulnerability and honesty. Sharing our stories and viewpoints is how we promote empathy, and the world can always use more of that.
