About the event
An opportunity for interested individuals in the Comox Valley, to learn simple tips to prioritize their own health & well being. Monica Parkin, TEDex Speaker, and podcast host of: Juggling Without Balls will interview Jocelyn Bystrom, about her own mental health journey, and eventual diagnosis with Functional Neurologic Disorder, after a seven-year long complex diagnostic journey in February 2021. I will share stories and answer a Q&A led by M. Parkin, also of the Comox Valley, what led me to a workshop titled: Writing for Chronic Health, and my writing eventually became a book titled: FiNDing Hope: The Mind-Body Connection & Importance of Being Seen and Heard, which will be published late-October, 2023 by @StoneTigerBooks, New York.
