On our podcast ‘Tales That Tethr’, tethr Founder & CEO Matt Zerker interviews entrepreneurs, experts, thought leaders, and regular people about what is means to be a man, the challenges that modern men face, and how to overcome challenges and live life in a more connected and authentic way.
tethr co- founder and COO Addison Brasil recently appeared on Enough, The Podcast hosted by Mandy Lehto.
Podcast Info: How does not-enoughness manifest for men?
How might perfectionism and the pressures to appear a certain way be even more challenging during a pandemic?
And what’s possible for men’s mental health in a post-pandemic world?
I wanted to have this urgent conversation because the current statistics on men’s mental health and suicide rates are both staggering and heart breaking.
Today’s guest is Addison Brasil, men’s mental health advocate, and cofounder of Tethr, a men’s mental health and wellbeing app that’s focused on peer support.
This is a timely, necessary conversation whether you’re a man feeling the pressures of life in extended lockdown, or whether you want to be a better ally to the men in your life.
This episode is also radically practical, as Addison shares insights and ideas from his own lived experience, and from the thousands-strong online community that he helps to support.
We talk perfectionism, grief (wowzers, this bit!), and daily emotional fitness. Provocative, helpful, practical.

More about Mandy Lehto:
"I’m a coach, writer and speaker. Most importantly, I’m a champion of people seeking more, which typically includes more light, more peace, more purpose, and more authenticity.
I support high achievers who are ready to redefine success, without taking an off-ramp into self-help oblivion. Joy and satisfaction expand when you settle fully into who you are and actively create your life. Meaning? There’s no need for a silent ashram if you’re an extrovert in zebra-stripe stilettos. On the flip side, power can radiate as quiet, confident kindness. You get to choose all the nuances (including your shoes)."
