My inspiration for Exhalation Integrative Wellness stemmed from the longstanding impact of observing and being affected by my parents’ addictions, from my own personal bout with invasive illness and from the overwhelming sense of helplessness that comes from observing the terminal decline in health of my own loved ones. This stream of illness, chronic disease, terminal illness and loss ultimately opened my eyes to the health disparities in the community and its ever-increasing dependence on medical professionals, prescriptions, alcohol, drugs and other synthetic substances.
Hi Pat, the integration of your project across multiple sectors is quite commendable. It appears that you weren't able to complete the impact section of your submission. Could you elaborate on the specific impact and ongoing sustainability of your project so far?
Hi Leslie, thanks so much for being a change maker. This project reminds of the evidence based approach love and logic, but with a focus on children and youth. This is surely something that is needed more for youth to build tolerance, empathy acceptance and also resilience. Good luck with your project.
Rick, I love that your project captures the positive impact of understanding ACES in community settings. Though this study came about some time ago, not enough focus is placed on assessing and understanding risk, or averting its impact. I wish you the best of luck in your program.
