Michael Trovato

My name is Michael Trovato. I'm from Long Island, NY, and I'm the Founder of Whatismyhealth. As a teacher for the past 8 years, I've helped teach thousands of students how to be active, make healthy choices, interact with one another, and challenge their bodies and minds. I've always wanted to help people, and so I started Whatismyhealth as a way to reach and bring together even more people to share our experiences and learn how we can all become healthier versions of ourselves.

I believe that there is not just one factor that determines our health, but that we're all different and there are many things that are connected and can influence how we feel. When I was 8 years old I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and so my mental health has played a big role in my life. After keeping it private for two decades, I decided to share my experiences in my blog "Ob(C)esseD" in order to help people understand what it's like to live with OCD, and to reach and relate to those who are battling OCD in their own lives.
