The Details

Traumatic experience:

Justin knew growing up that his ideas and thoughts were different from his peers and these differences led him to being picked on and bullied from elementary school to high school. Justin was later diagnosed with class 1 bipolar disorder when he was in his early thirties. 

Effects of the traumatic experience:

As a result of being different, Justin became really good at hiding his true emotions and feelings. He's also battled the highs and lows that come from having bipolar disorder. 

Overcoming the traumatic experience:

Racing has been crucial in helping Justin get to where he is today and in helping him manage his bipolar disorder. Focusing on self-care and making his mental health a priority has also been crucial for Justin's success.  

What Justin does today: Justin is an Off-Road Racer, Entrepreneur, Speaker, Author, and Mental Health Advocate. 

Final Question:

Given what you know now, if you could go back to when you were going through the tough times and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?

Justin's Answer: Raise your voice and let others know about what you're going through.
