Achea Redd: Fear-"less”
Mental health advocate, award-winning author, and influencer, Achea Redd, spoke with host and husband Michael Redd about her own journey from diagnosis to recovery, and her mission to help end the stigma associated with seeking mental health care, especially for women of color.
“We have to let go of who we think we should be and embrace what is.” – Achea Redd
Achea Redd is the author of “Be Free. Be You,” and founder of the non-profit, Real Girls F.A.R.T. – a space designed to empower and equip women with the necessary tools to become their best, most authentic selves (goals central to her book as well).
Over the past few years, Achea has used her own journey of self-expression and healing to encourage thousands to embrace their voice and let it out.
In early 2016, Achea was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. As a form of self-expression and healing, she created her own blog to share her feelings about mental health and authenticity.
She is also the official sponsor of Nationwide Children’s Hospital On Our Sleeves Movement. Her forthcoming book, “Authentic You”, comes out this November.
In this episode Michael and Achea talked about:
- What it’s like to be married to an elite athlete
- How Achea found the path to self-discovery
- On taking a leap of faith and her journey to award-winning author
- The reasons she founded a non-profit to empower women to live out loud
