Get a Grip was created by Neal O’Farrell, widely regarded as one of the longest serving cybersecurity experts on the planet. But not quite as long as his struggles with mental health.
His more than 40-year career finally came crashing down under the weight of nearly 50 years of a collection of untreated mental illnesses, which in turn triggered more than 30 years of chronic stress that nearly ended his life.
In an effort to finally get a grip on his mental health, he’s spent the last five years trying to find out the how and why of it. How the brain works, how mental illnesses work, what control we have over our mind and brain, and what science says about all these therapies and treatments.
