Ben Rein, PhD., is a Stanford neuroscientist whose social media posts about the inner workings of the brain have earned him nearly one million followers across TikTok and Instagram. He’s also just someone who, like so many of us, was looking for better ways to manage the stresses of daily life—a journey that led him to enrolling in Meru Health as a participant. 

Here, interviewed by Meru Heath Medical Director Priyanka Wali, M.D., he discusses his experiences both with the Meru Health program and as a man navigating the mental healthcare landscape.

“I liked the Meru Health program because it was easy and under my control. I could go as far or as deep as I wanted to. It just helps you stop and think about your life and reminds you that you really are the most important, because without your own health you can’t really be healthy for anybody else.”
