Joel is a surfer who has a passion for helping others, particularly in the mental health space. He’s worked as an occupational therapist for mental health patients transitioning back to life after hospitalisation and now runs a program called Waves of Wellness - Joel and his team are pioneering evidence-based surf therapy intervention in mental health.
I’ll let him tell you the rest of the story, but it is a good one.
Glad I can have him on the show today, and I’m glad you’re here for it.
