Talking Mental Health in Whitehorse, Yukon

Had an incredible trip to Whitehorse in the Yukon! (It was my first visit.) Talked to a team of government employees about the stigma of mental health and we played a couple tunes on the banjo too!

Disconnect (just once)
Posted on December 13, 2016

As we slide toward the end of the year, consider the benefits of doing less.

Try to remember to turn your device(s) off 1x each day.

Disconnect –

Your brain will thank you.

Changing The Way People Think
Posted on September 4, 2015

Starr Dobson was kind enough to invite me on her radio show: ‘Changing The Way People Think’ – Episode 12, 08.14.15 –

We talk about the value of meaningful recreation and social supports for mental wellness. Plus, I share my thoughts on the artificial division we have created between mental health and physical health.

[HINT: Your Brain is Not a Hat.]

You can find it here (interview starts at 08:35)

Also, while I was in the office I did a Mental Health Minute for CTV news.
I missed it when it aired on TV, but it should be posted here soon.

My mom saw it. She said I wore the wrong shirt.
Apparently folks don’t take you seriously if you wear plaid.

Next time I’ll stick to solid colours.
