One of the first steps to understanding our mental health is to learn how to address how we feel. But that's easier said than done for many people, especially men, who sometimes worry about appearing "weak" for talking about struggles with anxiety and/or depression. The fear that our loved ones might think less of us if we disclose anxiety, depression, or another mental health issue is what keeps many people from getting the help they deserve.

World-renowned food writer and critic David Leite recalls his first-ever panic attack to MedCircle host Kyle Kittleson. He shares that living with undiagnosed high-functioning anxiety and bipolar disorder was like "looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope." Watch the rest of the interview to hear him discuss what it was like growing up in the 1970s with the stigma of being mentally ill - and how being his own advocate gave him the clarity to identify his feelings and seek treatment for them.
