How This NBCUniversal Exec Publicly Dealt with Mental Illness (And Teamed Up With A Psychologist to Better His Workplace)

The film and television industry is incredibly pressure-filled, high stakes, and visible. That’s true for the actors and actresses – but there’s often just as much pressure for those behind the scenes. 

Jimmy Horowitz is a senior executive at NBCUniversal, and he shares his story of his battle with depression in 2019 – the first time he’s faced a mental health crisis. In this episode, he explains why it wasn’t easy to be transparent, and how he’s working with his organization, and psychologist Dr. Emily Anhalt, to make these conversations easier for others going forward. That includes approaching mental health like an ongoing workout regimen – the idea behind Anhalt’s company, Coa.
