About Me

Hi, I'm John Arenburg, welcome to The Road To Mental Wellness. Here, I tell my personal story battling Depression, Anxiety and PTSD.
I am a mental health advocate hoping that by telling my story others can see that they are not alone in their own personal battle with mental illness. I seek to inspire others to get the help they need by facing stigma head-on.
 a contributing writer to the non-profit organization Sick Not Weak. Also, I am a contributing writer to my local paper, the segment is called Mental Health Talk an advocacy group for all things mental health-related. I have appeared on the Podcast A New Dawn, another advocate in the battle against the stigma. I have guest blogged on several other mental health blogs and have many other projects in the works. I have served in the capacity of a mental health advisor to effect change at the policy level.
Meeting with people one on one, I attempt to give those who are suffering from mental illness a safe place to tell their own stories, real pain hidden away because of the very real fear of what others will think.
Addictions counsellor by trade, I spent 15 years in the volunteer fire service and nearly 20 years working in long term care setting helping those with severe behavioural challenges, mental disabilities and mental illness.

I grew up in small-town Nova Scotia, Canada. Today, I still reside in Nova Scotia with my incredibly supportive and beautiful partner where we share our home with two wonderful children.

Well, that's enough about me, I hope you, not only enjoy The Road To Mental Wellness but I hope it helps lead you down the path of your own mental health journey. To get you started Below is the blog post that started it all.
