I just loved this conversation.
I also spoke with Live Happy about mental health:
Wil Wheaton burst into the spotlight in 1986 in the iconic coming of age movie Stand By Me. He went on to play many more roles throughout his teen and young adult years, including starring as Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation and playing a version of himself on the hit TV show, The Big Bang Theory. But his success hid a childhood filled with trauma and abuse that led to a lifetime of depression, anxiety and complex PTSD. In his new memoir, Still Just a Geek, Wil opens up about his life and explains how he came to grips with his past. This week, he talks about why it’s so important to him to talk openly about mental health.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- What led Wil to revisit his life in his new memoir.
- How writing the book helped him find empathy and compassion for his younger self.
- Why it’s so important for him to normalize the conversation around mental health.
