Tess Kunik on Her Mental Health Journey and Losing Her Sister
Tess Kunik struggled with anxiety, disordered eating, and depression, but she chose to avoid dealing with her own mental health struggles and focus, instead, on supporting her younger sister, Liv. When she lost Liv to suicide in 2019, Tess realized that she could not cope with her struggles on her own—especially when her depression was joined by grief.
Tess sat down with JED to discuss how grief impacted her mental health journey and how she found a way forward.
