Julie talks to Melanie McGregor from the Halton Region branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association about how she opened up to her boss about her anxiety, and how her own personal experience with mental illness makes her passionate about helping people and workplaces learn how to encourage and support mental wellness, balance and recovery.
