I'm able to use lived experience [...] to help other folks who may be going through a more difficult time.

“I kept drinking and using up to my 30’s, at which point it became clear there might be something more than just my substance abuse issues.”

Fraser talks about:

  • His early career as a musician
  • Alcohol and substance abuse
  • Meeting with a psychiatrist
  • Becoming a counselor
  • Using his experiences to help others

“I’m very grateful for the journey that I’ve had, for the opportunities that I’ve had, and for the people I’ve met who’ve been able to support me to become a self determined, autonomous, articulate individual who also happens to suffer from depression.”

– Fraser, Peer Support Program Coordinator
