A lot of good stuff, right! But as someone suffering with depression, life can be challenging. I've been to the bottom of that dark pit. Fallen and broken, I attempted suicide. Got up onto my feet. Moved forward.
In October, 2017, the Honourable Lois Mitchell, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta awarded me the Alberta Lieutenant Governor's Circle on Mental Health and Addiction certificate for excellent work done to strengthen outcomes and quality of life for people living with mental illness and addiction. It was a "WOW" moment for me! What motivates me is that person who feels alone, or who won't ask for help because thinks there is none.
I believe the journey is more important than the destination. Live. Laugh. Love. You choose the order.
My DEPRESSION HELP on Beliefnet is a mental health blog focusing on depression and suicide awareness. In my blog I discuss teen depression, men's mental health issues, LGBTQ, healthy living, and mental health research.
My bestseller, 'Heart of Love Evolution', is my story, of how I dealt with depression and recovered from suicidal thoughts. I attempted suicide several times. Did some self harm. Then I had an awakening, and realized I matter to the universe.
After publishing my book, I was invited to attend the 2014 Global Crisis of Depression Summit offered by The Economist at Kings Place in London on November 25, 2014, which included notable speakers Kofi A Anan, the 7th former Secretary General of the UN, and Alastair Campbell, former press secretary for British Prime Minister Tony Blair. A cool experience for someone struggling with depression.
I've been quoted in The Globe & Mail, CNN, The Express Tribune, and Outlook India, and there are videos.

My HuffPost articles have been featured in the U.K, the United States, and Canada. The ones about farmer depression have been picked up by various media in India. I write about depression, embracing and celebrating diversity and human differences. The political junkie in me enjoys writing about Canadian politics, and I try to have a balanced and fair approach.
