You’re Not Alone.

That’s the purpose of this podcast… to let people know they’re not alone in their battle with mental illnesses. I’ve wanted to start a podcast for a long time, so I finally gave in in January 2020. Now this thing is a passion project.

My name is Ali Vee. I battle with depression and social anxiety and I’m an active mental health advocate.

Behind the Illness is a mental health podcast dedicated to the education of mental illness and the psychology explaining it, and ending the stigma surrounding mental illness.

I chose the name Behind the Illness because it is going behind the scenes and facades of myself and others to inform others of what its like to live with a mental illness. Let’s be honest… it’s not fun. This podcast’s main goal is to inform and end the stigma surrounding mental illness.
