Vitoria Murakami is a member of the CMHA BounceBack Youth Advisory Committee, where she acts as a peer educator and actively contributes to the CMHA BounceBack blog.

In this episode, Vitoria shares her experience immigrating to Vancouver from Brazil, emphasizing how attending a new school, living far from loved ones, and having to make new friends led to heightened feelings of anxiety. Vitoria also touches on the stigma around mental health and how regular therapy has helped her cope with symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

"It [therapy] really helped me develop as a person."
