Peloton instructor Kendall Toole (NAMI Ambassador) started her mental health journey at an early age. At 11 years old, doctors explained she had OCD, which she learned to manage. Then, in college, she was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. "It's something I consider to be part of my power, I can help try to take that stigma away, as it affects so many individuals," Toole explains. Toole learned to work on her mental and physical health at the same time. As an avid boxer and cycling instructor, exercise became a one-two-punch prescription that has really helped her over the years. She's also become a mental health advocate with National Alliance on Mental Illness. And living through this global pandemic has given her the opportunity to look at all aspects of her life and dig deep, do the internal work and continue to look at her mental health.
