Advocating for Psychological Care
Howie Mandel is a comedian, actor and television host. His fist-bumps became famous when he hosted the game-show "Deal or No Deal", but what many people didn’t know at the time was that Mr. Mandel used the fist bumps to work around his fear of germs. Now a success on the America's Got Talent television program, he speaks openly about his challenges as a performer living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and ADHD, and the positive impact of mental health treatment.
