Episode 30: Andrew Neary | Stories Like Crazy

This week we talk to Andrew about how a little bit of magic (the game) helped him through his truama of abuse. Andrew Neary is a young restaurateur, learning about business and service through his dream business Drinks & Dragons. On a mission to create a healthier and better community, Andrew created the third-wave board game cafe to bring the best coffee possible to Durham and pair it with the bonding power of board games. This community building includes charity events like this March's Pour for the Shores Latte Art event which raised over $1000 for Ontario Shores Foundation for Mental Health, and the upcoming Speed Monopoly Tournament on June 21st for Ontario Shores and the Keller Williams Turkey Drive. https://www.drinksanddragons.ca/ https://www.facebook.com/DrinksandDragons/ https://twitter.com/drinksndragons https://www.instagram.com/drinksanddragonscafe/

Episode 29: Ambassadors of Hope with Lori Lane Murphy

We get an update on what Lori has been up to, and she introduces us to the Ontario Shores Centre's Ambassadors of Hope! Here's her profile on their website: Lori Lane-Murphy Lori is a full-time mental health advocate, student, wife and mom. Her advocacy includes writing, performing and podcasting all in an effort to change the hearts and minds of people around mental illness. Mental illness was a part of her family growing up, but it certainly wasn’t the whole story. This reality prompted Lori to show people that while there are undeniable challenges living with or caring for someone mental illness, one should never be identified by illness alone. People have challenges. It’s part of the human experience. Comedic storytelling keeps Lori busy in her “spare” time and she loves to share and teach others how to craft and tell their own mental health stories. People with mental illness are often dismissed or have their stories told for them. By accepting that they own their own voices and that they do have something to say, compelling and heartfelt stories unfold. Advocacy also means working toward a more “mental health positive” workplace so that Lori’s teenaged son, who struggles with severe anxiety, OCD and ADHD will have a better experience in the work force than she ever did. It’s important to set the example now that mental health issues needn’t hold a person back from attaining their goals. Lori is a dedicated volunteer at Ontario Shores who is eager and excited to open up about her lived experience with mental illness.
