Do You Have a Minute?

Lauren Ellman! Author, podcaster, mom, millennial… she’ll BRB.
Lauren wrote Brb: A Memoir About Coming Of Age In The Digital Age. This book is her story about mental health and social media. From the book page: “WE USED TO SAY BRB WHEN WE WALKED AWAY FROM OUR COMPUTERS. We don't say that anymore. We live here now. How has that shift affected our mental health? That's the question Lauren has been trying to answer for the past decade, exploring the intersection of mental health and social media use. This is her story of coming of age in the digital age, all while her undiagnosed anxiety disorder bubbles under the surface until finally demanding to be treated.” This lovely, funny, smart woman was a delight to talk to… and such a great resource!
