On today’s episode, Ross Wilson joins us for an incredible discussion on the power of kindness when healing from adverse life experiences. When Ross’ mother was diagnosed with cancer and Ross went through his own mental health struggles, he was inspired to make positive change and work towards meaningful actions for his community. During the pandemic, burnout amongst healthcare workers was widespread. Ross is using his knowledge in the field to partner with PsyMood and help make mental health support accessible to larger groups of first responders and front-line workers. Psymood, a partner organization of Advica, prides itself on providing online and affordable diverse mental health support for newcomers to Canada by matching users to mental health specialists that understand their culture and speak their native language.
Both Ross and Kevin are triathletes. They discuss Ross’ top practices to keep his overall wellness in check including daily yoga practices, healing his relationship with food, and getting to bed early!
Please join us in welcoming Ross Wilson.
