Hola, bienvenidos, and welcome to another episode of the latinx identity project. This is a podcast where we tell stories for us and by us. I am your host, Elsa Iris Reyes
Today’s guest is Mario Chamorro, the founder and CEO of OYE, a venture backed and bilingual mental wellness platform set to go live in September 2022. Mario is from Colombia and has an incredible background as an activist and now tech entrepreneur. I am very excited to take this opportunity with Mario to address mental health in our community. Mario will share insights as to why our community can sometimes be hesitant or unable to seek mental health services and ways to address access in our community.
The OYE app will be available starting September 15 and will provide daily wellness practices, tools and resources in Spanish and English. You can get a free 1-year membership to OYE’s emotional wellness app + practices if you subscribe before September at Oye.co

Learn about barriers to mental health access and ways to get help:
On a personal note, I have been in and out of therapy since I was 19. I am grateful to all my therapists that helped me through crisis, healing, and coming to terms with my past and who I am today. And to you listeners, if you are in a moment of crisis, please do not hesitate to reach out to a professional or trusted community leader. Your mental health is wealth, just like your physical.Support the show
