“For people who have it or for people who have a family member who have it, I want to tell you that it is possible to get through. There is HOPE”
– Matthew Dickson
Welcome to The Jimbo Paris Show #72- There is HOPE with Schizophrenia (Matthew Dickson)
Matthew Dickson uses his MindAid.ca platform to help people with mental illnesses in developing countries gain access to basic mental health care. Mind Aid serves as a hub, directing people to organizations that are working on the issue. These organizations use models of basic mental health care that are low-cost, proven effective, and scalable.
Bill Clinton, Forest Whitaker, Arcade Fire, Ashley Judd, Zak Williams (son of Robin Williams), and Tim Shriver, founder of the Special Olympics, have all endorsed some of these organizations.
Matthew has successfully recovered from schizophrenia and has bicycled across Canada.
