May is Mental Health Awareness Month and organizations across the nation are taking time to remind people to take care of their emotional well-being. The World Health Organization reports a 25% increase in anxiety and depression since the start of the pandemic.

Dr. Jeff Rocker, a Celebrity Therapist, and Mental Health Expert is nationally recognized for his innovative techniques and approaches toward troubled teens, interpersonal relationship partner conflicts, and professionals struggling with work-life balance. He also works with clients with debilitating addiction issues. Dr. Jeff has also worked with athletes in the NFL, NBA, MLB, and clients in the Movie, Music, and Entertainment industries. The owner of 10 Mental Health Practices across the country Dr. Jeff provides a holistic approach to therapy as he offers in-home therapeutic services.

Dr. Rocker has established a team of diverse individuals that are changing the world’s perspective on mental health one community at a time. His team does multiple outreach programs for these communities to help dispel the myths about therapy and remove the stigma around mental health.

One of the outreach programs that Dr. Rocker created is called Hip Hop Therapy. This is an interactive workshop done in high schools across South Florida. His goal is for students to have a safe space to express themselves in an unconventional manner. Growing up with a musical background, this program is one that truly resonates with him on a personal level.

“Hip hop encourages resilience and self-healing. In schools and other mental health environments, a few studies have discussed the use of hip-hop as a socially responsive therapy service. The participation of African American and Latin teens in hip-hop music conversations has always succeeded over conventional approaches as a means of fostering calming discourse, finding changes in peer relations, and a penchant for hip-hop-based therapy” said Dr. Rocker.
