This week for #freeyourmindfriday, Jay Shifman, the mental health warrior behind @thenextshifman, took over our Insta stories to talk all things mental health and addiction. Check out his bio below, and head over to Instagram to see what he had to say!
Hey Mental Health Warriors! My name is Jay Shifman. I’m a consultant, speaker, writer, advocate, and coach living on Daniel Island, SC with my wife, Lauren, and our dog, Nell. We moved here last summer from Cincinnati to be closer to my wife’s family. Thanks to my time in Cincinnati, I’m a huge fan of 1N5. And their work is personal to me. I’m excited to say that as of this month, I’m 10 months in recovery! Now, I dedicate myself to helping improve our society’s Mental and Behavioral Health habits and how we talk about Addiction and Mental Health as a whole. A few months back 1N5 made me their Wednesday Warrior so you can read my full story. If you’re curious about my work, please check out my website. I’m excited to have you along today as I showcase what Mental Health and Addiction recovery looks like to me!
