Apps, Anxiety, and Adolescence: Youth Mental Health in the Age of Covid
35 min

It was already a challenge, even before the pandemic: helping young people and their families navigate Canada’s complex, fragmented mental health system. But experts say COVID could also serve as a catalyst for much-needed change, an opportunity to make meaningful improvements. Just like the rest of us, young people are spending more time than ever in front of screens; up to 7.5 hours per day, in the case of high school students. But those same apps and social media sites that are taking up more of our days could also be a force for good, as long as we use the right ones, in the right ways.

In honour of World Mental Health Day, this episode of RBC Disruptors delves into the potential risks and rewards of our growing dependence on technology during the pandemic. Host John Stackhouse sits down with two leaders in the field of youth mental health; Doctor Joanna Henderson, clinical psychologist, and director at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, and Doctor Yuri Quintana, the Chief of the Division of Clinical Informatics at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He also hears from Shauna MacEachern, the executive director of Frayme, which leads a global network that connects young people with mental health and social services here in Canada and around the world.

Together, they discuss the explosion in the number of health and wellness apps that are available, how those apps can and should be evaluated for effectiveness, and what else needs to happen in order to break down barriers to accessing mental health services in Canada. You’ll also hear about the importance of collaborating with youth, and involving them in the development process, in order to ensure their needs are being met by a system that has historically failed to do so.

15. Bringing Clean Water to the World: From Club Owner to Impact Maker | with Scott Harrison of charity:water
We were sitting in our kitchen a couple weeks ago when Adrian pulled up this video for us to watch. It went over Scott Harrison’s journey, how he got clarity on his mission to bring clean water to the world, and why he started charity: water to accomplish that goal. 14 later, charity: water has raised over $496 million and funded over 59,000 water projects in 29 countries, providing water for over 11 million people with clean, safe drinking water once all those projects are done. That’s such an incredible impact, but Scott is just getting started. There are still 785 MILLION people around the world who don’t have access to clean drinking water, with thousands of children dying each day as a result. That sucks. But here’s the silver lining: we know how to help every single one of them. It only costs $40/month to give one person clean water, the systems are in place to do it through charity:water and other organizations, and we just need more resources. So, if you’re able to, we strongly encourage everyone to join The Spring and do what you can to solve this problem.

ADU 01148: What Is Navigable Airspace and How It May Affect Drone U Pilots
In today's show, we attempt to decode what navigable airspace truly means. Getting to the bottom of this can help drone pilots navigate the confusing maze of drone rules and laws to clearly understand where they can and cannot fly. Back in 1946, United States vs. Causby (1946), a Supreme Court decision abolished "ad coelum". "Ad coelum" stated that a person who owned the soil also owned all of the airspace above it. But, while, the Courts abolished ad coelum, they also rejected the government's claim to possess all the space above ground. Which brings us to the moot question - what exactly is navigable airspace? Going by pure logic, if space up to your treetops is "non-navigable", why can't you fly without a Part 107 in your own backyard? And, going by this same logic, if you are flying a commercial job in "non-navigable" airspace, why do you need any sort of flight approval at all? We discuss all this and much in today's show. Enjoy!

Are there any exceptions? Can you legally fly your drone inside a roofed stadium? As per United States vs. Causby (1946), do you own the airspace above your private property? What is navigable airspace? Do we even have a precise, legal definition? Can you fly your drone in your backyard even if you live in controlled airspace? Can you fly without a license in your own backyard if you are staying beneath the treetops? Can you legally fly your drone over tribal land? Why we need to regulate airspace at a federal level, and what a patchwork of state laws would mean for the industry as a whole What is the legal definition of navigable airspace?

Dr. Williams is an academic and one of the world's leading authorities on expertise and its acquisition in sport. We dive into many great topics from his book The Best: How Elite Athletes Are Made, including The difference between performance and learning, how to teach decision making for athletes, and early speacialization versus early engagement. Dr. Williams has published 18 books and written over 500 scientific articles on how people become skilled and achieve success in sport and across other professional domains. He has worked across the globe as a consultant with numerous Olympic and professional sports and has vast experience as a scientist, author and educator, and as an applied sports scientist. Highlights from the Podcast: * The driving force to writing The Best: How Elite Athletes Are Made * The difference between performance and learning * How do we incorporate getting feedback as coaches? * The importance of the role of "vision" in an athlete's performance * What are some ways to teach decision making for athletes? * Dr. Williams explains the "challenge point" and how to approach it * How to create situations at practice to help develop individual athletes * Early Speacialization versus Early Engagement More about The Best: How Elite Athletes Are Made THE BEST deconstructs the myths, like the notion that 10,000 hours of practice are needed to make it to the top, and explores the hidden power of the mind to reveal how athletes really think and process information during high octane competition. it gets inside the minds of champions, deconstructing what athletes see during matches and explaining how they do what they do.Drawing on examples and lessons from throughout the sporting world, this is for anyone who wants to know what it takes to be the best. The Way of Champions Podcast is brought to you by Sports Refund. When kids sign up to play youth sports there are always fees involved. And parents pay those fees so their child can be on the team, not the injury report. That’s why I love Sports Refund, and parents will too. Sports Refund is low-cost sports fee insurance – NOT health insurance, sports fee insurance. So if your child becomes injured or sick and can’t play, you get your fees reimbursed for that lost time, from one game to an entire season. It’s that simple. This product not only saves families wasted fees, it saves injured athletes the stress of feeling like they’re wasting their parents’ money. The fees come back until the player comes back. So they can focus on fully recovering and making a healthy return to the game. Sports Refund has options for individuals and organizations. Ask your club if they offer it, or visit SportsRefund.com/Game to learn more and sign up today. That’s SportsRefund.com/Game. Can’t Play? Don’t Pay. With Sports Refund.
