Therapy is not just for people who 'can't handle life'. In a TODAY story Anisa Benitez opens up about her experience with counseling and how it helped her get through a stressful period in life. Anisa wants people to know that therapy is not just for people who are really struggling. It is beneficial to talk to someone for a variety of reasons, some of which are mentioned in the article.
"I care about dismantling the stigma around seeking professional mental health support, especially for people of color and other marginalized communities. We are the people who need support the most based on societal mistreatment and additional cultural stress that comes with existing in a white-dominant country."
Anisa is the founder of the Podcast "No Starving Artist"
