The Journey Podcast with Carra Yoder

Hey friends! I’m Carra Yoder, a survivor of an eating disorder and suicide ideation that found that my love of the great outdoors helped me heal. I grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin, got married at a young age, moved to Tampa, Florida, and got a divorce. I ended up mentally in a very bad place to the point my parents gave me an ultimatum of either coming home or moving to Los Angeles to be closer to one of my brothers. However, I wasn’t ready to give up and go home, so I moved to Los Angeles. I grew up and faced many mental and physical challenges here, but it has made me who I am today. I’m here to change the conversations around mental health and eating disorders, bringing real-life stories of survivors, those in recovery, and my journey.
