Episode 29: Standing Shoulder to Shoulder
The focus of today’s episode is on creating positive situations out of the darkest moments. Joining Chief Neil Dubord today is Deepak Prasad, a Divisional Wellness Coordinator for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
April 18-19th, 2020 in Nova Scotia marked one of the darkest moments in the history of the province and the country. A gunman went on a rampage and took many innocent lives including the life of Constable Heidi Stevenson, a mother of two who had been with the RCMP for 23 years. On the morning of the 19th, Deepak’s phone went off to ‘steady-up’ and deploy the peer support team to do everything that they could do to support their community.
In this episode, Deepak Prasad shares his experience of this event, the silver lining of the community coming together, the importance of being proactive in your wellness, and why you need a support structure. This is a deeply impactful conversation and episode you do not want to miss.
