Jigs & Reels - November 27th, 2023
On this weeks show as we prepare for the holiday season, it's fast to ignore possible signs of issues with ones mental health. Certain events over time can trigger an episode which can be life or death for some. I'll be talking with 2 mental health advocates from NF, Glenn Roil and Tina Olivero. It'll be the second time to talk to Glenn, but the first for me to talk to Tina.   Glenn Roil is a global mental health advocate. His mission is to de-stigmatize mental illness and mental health and make sure everyone who requires access and treatment receives the programs and services that they need. Glen has been very open about his own mental health struggles and was the public face for mental health with the Provincial Government’s anti-stigma campaign on mental illness and addictions called “Understanding Changes Everything,” which was launched at the Premier’s Summit on Health Care. Tina Olivero is a mother first and foremost who lost her son this past summer to addiction and is the brains behind the group Guardians of Recovery. Guardians Of Recovery provides innovative recovery solutions that include programs for families with addicted loved ones and SOBER Healing Homes for those in Recovery. We are creating Sober Communities because we believe everyone has the right to be free...drug free. A benefit concert, Ben's Law - The HUMAN RIGHT to LIVE addiction FREE! was held last week and the response has been overwhelming. I will remind you that this weeks podcast may not be for everyone as there will be talk about suicide and mental health issues.
