Do you suffer from mental illness? Do you find it difficult to cope in your career, school/college or even socially?

My guest, Jason Finucan, shares his story and gives us practical steps on how you can build resilience. Jason Finucan is an inspirational speaker on the topic of overcoming stigma and reducing the impact of mental illness. He has had the unique experience of being diagnosed with both a major physical illness (heart defect leading to open-heart surgery) and a mental illness (bipolar disorder). It was in comparing the two experiences, both personally and professionally, that he realized the destructive power of stigma, which is very prevalent with respect to mental illness and yet non-existent with other, more known illnesses.

Jason has graciously offered a gift: Stigma-Free Checklist that you an access here after you subscribe: http://www.empowerproservices.com/en/category/blog/

Jason began speaking professionally, and founded Empower Professional Services, to partner with corporations and schools so they may improve their ability to manage the negative impacts of mental illness - ultimately reducing stigma and minimizing lost productivity.

An avid golfer and curler, Jason and his wife, Anna, live in St. Lazare, Quebec. Jason can be reached at http://www.empowerproservices.com

You were very easy to deal with. Pleasant manner, tone of voice and easy to speak to.  You kind of have the voice and demeanor that make people "want" to talk with you. Once people know your story, they want to talk to you more, perhaps to grab a bit of your strength and positive attitude in their own lives.  I find you to have a caring way about you. Concerned for others and how you can help them be better at being them.
