Matt Pappas

Patient Leader

I am a Blogger, Podcaster, Author, and Advocate for Survivors of Abuse. I started Surviving My Past as an outlet to share my story of survival from childhood sexual abuse, narcissistic abuse, and bullying. Since beginning my blog in Feb 2016, it has blossomed into a safe haven where survivors from across the globe can share their story, inspire others, and feel validated in their own survivor journey. Content on the blog includes posts, podcasts, and videos all in support of mental health awareness and advocacy, and all who have survived the trauma of abuse.

Best in Show: Podcast Advocating for Another

Matt's dedication to professionalism, community, and advocacy are among just a few of the reasons I am nominating him. Not only do I love his podcast, I get the privilege of working alongside him daily as we host daily recovery support calls. I can honestly say I would not want to lead those calls with anyone else. Matt is awesome!  — Athena
