Author - Matthew Olesh
Born and raised in southern California, Matt Olesh is a craft beer pro turned mental health warrior and prospective psychology grad student. While planning to open his own business in 2016, the depression, anxiety, and suicidal thinking he'd struggled with most of his life reared its ugly head. Now, he's eager to share the details of his struggle and insights he's picked up throughout his time in inpatient care, single and group therapy sessions, reading, classes, and a whole bunch of mindfulness in the hopes ending the stigma surrounding mental health and making the world a better place. When he's not slinging beers to pay the bills, you can find him soaking in the lovely San Diego sun, tending to his garden or bottling some kombucha!
