Episode 24: Creating Your Own Standard for Support (with Vanessa Nicholson)
Play • 1 hr 2 min

The lovely and intelligent Vanessa Nicholson, member of Sagamok Anishnawbek, talks about her roles in the Indigenous community (check out Finding Our Power Together) and her own experiences of battling the limited structure of Western colonial schooling & treatment. We both talked about how the current systems in place for mental health care don't meet the mark in effectively supporting Indigenous people—but also people in general with a complex history of trauma. It's a heavy episode, and an important one. Thanks for joining me Vanessa!
