Sabrina Benaim (poet/writer) explains how finding a
squash-ball-sized tumor in her twenties led to her vocalizing her
feelings and mental health struggles through slam poetry. Her
first mental breakdown was in tenth grade, but she wasn't diagnosed
until she was 24. When she was a kid, she felt like a weirdo,
and learned to not talk about her feelings, but now she tours the
world, sharing her poems with audiences, breaking down stigma and
spreading awareness of mental health. Sabrina and I alternate
between laughter and seriousness in this wonderful episode!
We also talk about:
writing as catharsis/therapy,
travelling with mental illness,
depression + anxiety,
positive social media,
dance as therapy,
spirituality + meditation + tarot cards,
and MUCH more!
Sabrina is the author of Depression and Other Magic Tricks and can be found on instagram @badass_sab
