James Hadlock joins us to tell his story, and about the mission of Blunovus. He tells about his history of wearing a “backpack of shame,” running away, addiction and a psychotic break, eventually leading to jailtime. 25% of Americans live with a diagnosable mental illness. 80% of those will NEVER ask for help. Blunovus is a proactive employee assistance program embraced by employers like EMI Health, Divvy, and Purple Mattress. He talks about making mental health a positive discussion in the workplace and why a “no tolerance” substance policy is failing employees AND employers. Enjoy.
