Mental health advocate Jason Prinzo will be the keynote speaker for Country Radio Seminar (CRS) 2024. He will hold his session “Your Brain Is A Liar: Recognizing and Understanding The Impact of Your Mental Health” on Friday, March 1 at 10 a.m.
After facing early-life traumas, Prinzo set out on his mental health journey. After high school, the Cincinnati native started a 25-year career in radio and record promotion. Through his time, he gained an understanding of the emotional challenges being in the music industry can cause. Despite being in the middle of a successful career, he was battling depression, anxiety, anger and imposter syndrome. By sharing his story with audiences, he highlights the realities of mental illness, challenges misconceptions, fosters empathy, promotes self-care and inspires others on their paths to coping and discovery.
“Your Brain Is A Liar” will focus specifically on how anxiety affects us professionally, overcoming imposter syndrome, understanding the effects of trauma, the benefits of therapy and practical steps to alleviate symptoms, within the specific context of the music industry.
Additionally, CRS will also include the “Paws n’ Play Program.” In partnership with Agape Animal Rescue & Training Center, attendees will be able to interact with puppies during session breaks. While providing stress relief, those who visit the site will also learn about fostering, adopting and dog training tips.
CRS Executive Director, RJ Curtis, says, “CRS continues our serious commitment to providing mental health resources for our industry members. Jason’s deep background in the music business brings a relatable, hands-on approach to our attendees and their unique challenges. We strongly urge everyone to see his talk on Friday. An additional hands-on experience this year is our first-ever Hug-A-Pup program, where attendees can use session breaks to meet and play with adorable, adoptable puppies—the ultimate stress relievers—which will brighten everyone’s day.”
