Latinx Therapy


Mar 26, 2024

Break the Stigma segments are episodes that highlight mental health challenges and strengths from mental health advocates. Today, we learn about Multiple Sclerosis (MS) through our guest, Crystal Bedoya, Disabled Creator, Writer & Advocate. Crystal shares her story of being diagnosed with MS in childhood and the mental health diagnosis that followed. As a first-gen Latina, she talks about how medical appointments were with her Spanish-speaking parents, clarifies misconceptions and what toxic positivity can sound like and expresses how our community can support others. Tune in to learn and connect! Spanish episode coming soon.
