Hi everyone. I am in the Hunter’s Bay Radio Studio with Shari Dubois;
my first show with a guest behind the plexi-glass for Covid safety!
We had a good conversation, a hard conversation. Shari is opening
her heart and sharing her story. We are honouring her son Conrad
who had a long journey with mental health issues and addictions.
Conrad died on July 13th, 2019.
We are talking about normalizing conversations, loving people on
their journey, grief and joy and creating awareness. Shari is sharing
“Coco Bear”, Conrad’s art and I am wearing a Coco Bear t-shirt. Shari
and her family are creating these t-shirts to get these conversations started and continued. Shari says:
We would certainly like to help with mental health and addictions in
any way we can—absolutely being able to communicate and talk
about it! Having conversations about mental health and addiction, normalizing these conversations, prevention and just having “The Talk!”
The proceeds from Coco Bear t-shirts will help fund organizations
that are doing just that! I encourage you to reach out to Shari on Facebook (insert link) and find out how you can get yours, proudly
wear it, start talking and keep talking!
Thank you Shari, to you and your family, for your amazing-ness, for honouring Conrad so beautifully—for being the evidence that his life made a difference and will continue to make a difference.
If you are struggling or know someone who is…reach out, get help,
you don’t have to do this alone! Here is one resource:
