Julie talks to award-winning lifestyle journalist Amy Keller Laird. She’s SELF’s wellness correspondent, previous Editor-in-Chief of Women’s Health and Beauty Director of Allure, and founder of @club_mental, a new Instagram brand that looks at women’s lives and wellbeing through the lens of mental health. They chat about Amy’s OCD diagnosis, and the changes she’s witnessed during her career in the way that women’s mental health and wellness are reflected in traditional and social media.
