Mental Health and Cannabis: Interview with Jon Nelson
Today we are sharing an episode from our sister company’s Conversations with CannabisBPO. PharmaCentra and CannabisBPO CEO, Dan Berman, interviews mental health advocate Jon Nelson.
Dan sheds light on the lasting effects of stigma, “The goal of cancer is to kill you. The goal of mental illness is to kill you. Stigma feeds both. With mental illness, the goal of the disease is to get you to kill yourself and stigma eases the way.”
John Nelson is a fierce advocate fighting to pulverize the stigma of mental illness. Born and raised in “da burgh”, he still bleeds black and gold. More than just a survivor of mental illness, he is also, a lucky father to three unique kids with good souls, a proud husband to a wife who he admires more than anyone, an ice hockey coach, a softball coach, and a Healthcare Marketer.
Together Dan Berman, PharmaCentra, CannabisBPO, and Jon Nelson illuminate the complexities of mental health, advocating for a world where stigma is shattered, and compassion reigns supreme.
