Click here to listen to Episode 9 of Choose Your Own After podcast with Stacey, featuring her guest, Erin Fagan.

Episode 9 – October 21, 2021 – A physical injury and bearing witness to her father’s experience with depression and a suicide attempt, both set the scene for Erin’s own mental health decline starting before the age of 10. We chat about the four-decade-roller-coaster-cycle of trying to access support in an inadequate system, mis-diagnoses, suicide attempts, over-medicating and subsequent addiction. All while juggling the raising of three sons with the support of an extraordinary support network. She shares her experience of coming through the other side, after forging her path to wellness with her own recipe of self-care; and finding her way to a place where she now supports others as a Reflexologist and Reiki healer in the Region of Durham, Ontario.

* This episode includes some mature themes. Please take care and be mindful of little ears listening. *

Hi, I'm Stacey.
Welcome to the
Willowjak Blog 

My blog started as a way to document my journey to wellness, but turned into a place to be inspired by others through our collective messy & authentic stories. We chat about themes that are often ignored and voices that aren't often given a chance at the mic. Now it's my favourite place to be.
