– Berwick man writes book about his mental health battle to help others
Mental health is a very important topic! We all know someone who suffers from mental health issues like depression, anxiety, or PTSD. Over the years, we’ve seen lots of research, awareness, community involvement, and education in schools, but there’s still a heavy stigma surrounding men with mental health issues. I am very proud to introduce you to John Arenburg, and to talk about his new book The Road to Mental Wellness. The holidays can be a time of celebration and togetherness, but they can also be a time of struggle, deep depression, and anxiousness. This might be the perfect time to read this book and pass it along to someone who might need it.
Jonathan Arenburg was born in North York, Ontario, moved to Nova Scotia at a year old, and was raised in Berwick. He’s a graduate of West Kings District High and from there, he went to NSCC and took human services and addictions counseling. John is a proud father of two and he’s now a published author, as his long battle with mental illness inspired his book, The Road to Mental Wellness. John’s story is one of incredible ups and downs, harsh discoveries, positivity, and a roller coaster of emotions. John is a former firefighter of 15 years, serving in the Berwick and District Volunteer Fire Department. He also worked at Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre for 18 years, working in client care. Now he is a mental health blogger, advocate, and published author. (More)
