Mental health struggles are common, and many of us are more at risk than we think. With half of conditions going undiagnosed, it's even more alarming to know that those who are diagnosed rarely seek professional help due to lack of awareness, fear of discrimination, and self-stigma.
“May is Mental Health Awareness month. Four years ago I am not sure I would have paid much attention but I probably should have for the 40+ years prior. Since then, I have spent much of my professional and personal life digging into the science of how we show up every day and what drives our actions. Why we do the things that we do. How it impacts ourselves including our physical self. This last year really kicked most of us in the butt and made many of us realize that this is hard. It didn’t just start being hard in 2020 – it was always hard, but now we are all getting more comfortable recognizing and saying aloud that this is hard, whatever your "this" happens to be. I never really understood how much stress and anxiety I had until I took the time to understand what that really meant and how it affects my head and my body. So, this is the face of stress and anxiety. Join me in sharing your story.”Matt Mund, Interim CEO @ Total Brain
"This is the face of anxiety. I’m a husband. I’m the father of 2 beautiful daughters. I’m an aspiring singer/songwriter. I’m the CMO of a publicly traded company. And I have anxiety. My story is unique, but my condition is not. More than 70% of the population is at risk of a mental condition. Join me in sharing your story."
-Matt Resteghini, CMO @ Total Brain

"This is the face of stress - within a household of 2 working parents, 3 teenagers and 2 dogs. I manage our company revenue - and our home budget. I always want to help everyone (family, friends, community, team members, clients, investors), and hate letting people down. I have taken calls for complex business deals from both soccer and lacrosse fields. I have misplaced stress from work onto my family, and from my family onto my work. I encourage others to care for themselves, but I often neglect my own self-care. I’ve been known to sneak away for a quick cry in the bathroom just to release my stress - and even then I typically have a dog burst through the door to join me."
