In this episode of Everyone Hates Healthcare, Michael Swartz has a thorough conversation with Jay Shifman, a mental health advocate, founder, and host of Choose Your Struggle, where he is working towards ending the stigma around issues of addiction and mental health. Jay was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder when he was a teenager and was put on a medication he didn’t need, severely impacting his mental health, and leading him to develop an addiction and attempt suicide repeatedly. After five years of recovery, Jay decided to use his voice and his experience to help others who might need support around their mental health, substance misuse, or recovery. He shares his story and some insights on the work that he does with Choose Your Struggle, discussing mental health issues and available resources for those in need.
