Rachel Steinman is a mother, wife, teacher, podcaster, and mental health advocate.
Rachel’s beloved grandfather jumped to his death. She later found his incomplete manuscript revealing dark family secrets. She decided to become his ghostwriter and ended up rewriting his story and realizing that she had a story as well to tell with understanding generational traumas and forgiving her bipolar mom.
With a burning desire to change the legacy, her daughters would genetically inherit, Rachel began to soul search and research. Rachel started Dear Family, the Podcast because she realized every family has someone dealing with some form of mental illness and by sharing her story, she inspires others to come forward and share theirs
She is not a therapist but a mental health advocate. She is a true believer that we are only as sick as our secrets and love is the best medicine. She’s one of the happiest, most grounded, and mentally healthy people we would have the pleasure of knowing. Today we exchange inspiring personal stories of overcoming obstacles to find mental wellness worth healing from. We're reducing the stigma and silencing the shame.
