In a semi post-pandemic world, there’s no doubt that global health is still very much a problem - especially when it comes to inequity and access. Leveling the playing field in places where there are very little resources to go around, or in places that aren’t even aware they desperately need help, can feel overwhelming and near impossible. Especially in the mental health space. Our guests today prove that sometimes giving your time, compassion and skill set towards a cause are priceless resources just as vital as financial contributions.
In this episode, hear from Juan Acosta – a mental health advocate and regional manager at CalHOPE Warm Line at Mental Health Association of San Francisco who began his work at the young age of 13, and Dr. Karry Jose Felix, Chief Surgeon at Doctors Without Borders. Both guests talk about their journey within their organizations, and how they’ve brought their lived experiences to help their communities to create a bigger, lasting impact for health access and change.
