Episode 74: Amy Minh Hanh Corey (she/hers) — public speaker, ambassador, advocate — shares her recovery story
On this episode, Catherine and Francis interview Amy Minh Hanh Corey, public speaker, writer, ambassador, entrepreneur, and advocate for individuals experiencing mental health problems who feel misunderstood. Amy demonstrates such strength and passion in her story, sharing with the co-hosts what it was like being someone experiencing mental health problems and an eating disorder in the entertainment industry and how she was able to find recovery in a world that didn’t want her to recover. Through her recovery journey, Amy has connected with her culture, practicing Buddhism to remain grounded, and helping to educate individuals across the globe – including Vietnam through her Goodwill Ambassadorship – about the impacts of mental health experiences and how to seek and access treatment. We feel so grateful for Amy’s time, energy, and vulnerability, and hope you can find your own connection in the words she shares.
