Happy to Fail Podcast: What’s it all about?

I’m delighted to announce that Happy to Fail, a Podcast about my road to wellness and overcoming challenges related to mental health is now available on most Podcast platforms!

The concept behind Happy to Fail is something I’ve worked on for years. I’ve had the privilege of sharing my story on-camera and in-person in multiple States, and every time I’ve seen the impact it can have on others. I’ve also been interviewed on radio, but all of these outlets are limited by time, scope or other situations that are out of my control. Having my own Podcast means I can shape and create an experience that I believe will motivate and inspire others, plus I get to gain new resources and ideas from all of you.

Podcast Description:

Juan Vélez Court is a Certified Peer Specialist from Puerto Rico whose journey with mental health challenges began when he was six years old. Through treatment, support and a healthy road to recovery he’s become a mental health advocate, sharing his story around the nation with the goal of motivating others to seek help and comprehend that recovery is possible.

In Happy to Fail, Vélez shares the serious, intriguing and embarrassing moments of his life that made him who he is today: A person that loves to cook, work and drink a strong cup of coffee, all while being aware there are many obstacles that exist for people who want to overcome their challenges and reach a new stage of life.


Average Episode Length: 20 to 30 minutes.

Publishing Date(s): Mondays, beginning May 6th, 2019.
