Eric Kussin - CEO, We're All A Little "Crazy"
This may have been one of our most important interviews we have done yet as Chris sits down with Eric Kussin, CEO of We're All A Little "Crazy", the SameHere Global Mental Health movement to discuss his journey that is a story you have to hear to believe. Eric quickly ascended through the ranks of the sports industry with stops at the NBA League Office, the New Jersey Devils, and eventually the CRO of the Florida Panthers. Eric's life changed when his mental health took a sudden and rapid decline the day of a Panthers home game. While essentially being mentally paralyzed Eric needed to step away from his role with the Panthers to regain control of his mind and body. Eric faced 2 1/2 years of extensive medical treatment from countless number of drugs to electroshock therapy. It wasn't until he tried alternative treatments that he was finally able to get his life back on track and start this foundation . Given the challenges we all currently face in our industry from unknown futures, lost revenue, and layoffs this is an important topic that affects all of us.
