Play • 38 min

This episode we’re chatting with Sonia, an undergrad student at the University of Guelph. Sonia is double majoring in Biology and Psychology with the hope of pursuing a career in the mental health field. Sonia’s interest in mental health stems from her own experiences following major surgery to treat scoliosis in high school. Since then, Sonia has learned a lot about her own mental health and how to help others. This episode we also learn about Jack.Org, a great organization which helped Sonia along her journey. You can learn more about Jack.Org by visiting their website or finding your local chapter.
