Rachael Steidl is the founder and Executive Director of YouthWell and launched the Community Collaborative in order to focus on prevention and early intervention efforts around mental health in Santa Barbara County.
In this engaging conversation, Rachael and Nancy discuss mental illness versus mental health, and how mental illness and mental health challenges are "invisible illnesses." She is dedicated to eliminating the stigma around mental illness and bringing an awareness to the issue for everyone. Her goal is for mental health to be treated like physical health.
