Jamie Dooks’ presentation is touching and powerful. When he spoke of his own struggle with depression, at our all-staff branch meeting in Dartmouth in June 2018, I was moved, as were a good lot of my colleagues there. His way of describing a difficult chapter of his professional and family life—with a personal touch of humour—is moving, yet a highly efficient way to promote mental health in the work place and in our own lives. Jamie demonstrates the importance of reaching out when the going gets tough, and definitely contributes to crushing the stigma around mental illness.
I was touched and inspired by Jamie’s story and how he shares it. He uses an entertaining presentation style to bring a powerful, encouraging message of hope. Thank you Jamie for your dedication to crushing the stigma around this issue that affects so many individuals and families.
