"I kept my anxiety secret for years. Then I opened up at work—and everything changed"

feat. Nicole Gottselig, Senior Brand Editor at Hotjar

In this episode...

In the 1990s, most people didn’t understand mental health, let alone discuss it. So even though Nicole began having panic attacks as a teenager, no one outside her family knew what she was going through—until she decided to tell her manager.

Created as part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2023, exploring Oliva users’ most common wellbeing focus: anxiety.
