RAV | Changing the Narritive Around Mental Health with Eric Kussin

Putting yourself out there to heal and help others heal. In this episode of the RAV Podcast Series, Jake chats with Eric Kussin, founder of We’re All A Little “Crazy”, a non-profit bringing together Athletes, Celebrities, and Expert Practitioners.

From a promising career as a sports executive, working in the NBA, WNBA and NHL, to a 2 1/2 year battle with severe PTSD from his childhood trauma. Eric’s path led him to the psych ward where even his psychiatrists were amazed at the amount of drugs he had tried leading to shock therapy for 22 consecutive days.

Today, Eric has been able to find himself again and speaks candidly about his experiences and connects to many items in terms of mental health. He speaks so clearly about how our thoughts can lead to many different outcomes and how the world speaks about mental illness.

This conversation with Jake and Eric is truly raw, authentic, and vulnerable.
