Al Interviews Justin Peck | Professional Off-Road Racer, Mental Health Advocate & Author of Bulletproof
In this episode, Al interviews Justin Peck, professional off-road racer, mental health advocate, and author of Bulletproof (recorded 7-22-19). Justin shares his story of being severely bullied as a child, having depression symptoms at age nine, and bipolar disorder symptoms since age thirteen. He was finally diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of twenty-six, after a suicide attempt.
A natural story-teller and a passionate, caring mental health advocate, Justin describes how he got into off-road motorcycling. He also describes the day of his suicide attempt and the moment of irrationality in which he nearly killed himself.
Justin's popular memoir, Bulletproof, describes the challenges he has had living with bipolar disorder and the perseverance he needed in order to overcome many tragic moments. Justin is a Mental Health America (MHA) Ambassador and shares his story publicly at every opportunity in order to support others living with a mental illness.
