The S.O.S. Podcast host Cesar Lainez and Duke University Engineering rising freshman Ather Williams and Cesar discuss Ather’s journey through a gap year and the hurdles he had to overcome during the pandemic. Ather further addresses the mental health issues that brought him to the lowest point in his life, how admitting that “it’s okay to not be okay” helped him, and why mental health advocacy is important in every school around the country.
