#227: Dr Craig Daly & Dale Sidebottom | JAG Bag Launch

Today is an exhilarating day as it marks three years since Dr Craig Daly and I started talking about putting together a challenge to help children and adults worldwide. This is completely free for everyone and labour of love to improve the globes happiness and mental health. Below you can read out what's involved in the free packs and click on the link at the end of the show notes to gain access to the JAG BAG Packs from Jugar Life. With approximately half of all mental disorders commencing before the age of 14, school settings play a crucial role in ensuring that mental health and well-being are constant focus points during a student’s formative years. Research over the past 20 years has suggested that comprehensive initiatives embracing a 'whole of school' approach (involving school leaders, teachers, staff, and parents) have fostered a climate where better transitions from childhood to adulthood occur. However, overall, student mental health appears to be on the decline, with an estimated one in every five adolescents suffering from a significant mental health disorder. Of additional concern is that, sadly, most instances go undetected and untreated. Early research outputs since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic estimate incidences of adolescent anxiety, depression, and stress have risen significantly. Students worldwide struggle to deal with the loneliness, social isolation, and negativity brought on by continued uncertainty. At JUGAR|LIFE, we want to do our part to remedy that. JAG, as an acronym, stands for joy, affection, and gratitude. These elements exist as core components of social and emotional wellbeing. We challenged ourselves to design an initiative that prioritised these components irrespective of school setting; an initiative that was comprehensive in nature, flexible in delivery, and aligned with specific learning objectives drawn from global social and emotional wellness curricula. We made it our mission to make it available free of charge to all. The JAG Bag is the result.

What does success look, sound or feel like? This is a question that Kyle Wood my good mate, and I have been chatting about for a while. Kyle is one of the smartest business owners I know and also is now a great friend of mine. In 2016 I reached out to Kyle through email with a crazy idea that we could meet up and create a podcast together. I had followed Kyle's work online for years, and really admired what he had been able to create, and the impact it was having globally. Since that first email in 2016, we have formed a great bond and also a cracking podcast called 'Lead Your Tribe'. Just like this weekly podcast, Kyle and I release a weekly episode for anyone who wants to build a business, tribe or following. Last weeks episode was so powerful that I had to share it here today. The reason it was so powerful is that 2020 has allowed us to change goals, ideas and the vision for the future. With this, I feel this means what we class as being successful has changed as well. Join Kyle and myself as we dive into this huge topic on today's podcast. You can also watch this podcast here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7ZW00sHmhM If you would like to check out our 'Lead Your Tribe' podcast you can do so here - https://leadyourtribe.co/

#213: Dr Andrew Leech | Supporting Families To Thrive

Welcome to episode #213 with Dr Andrew Leech. Andrew believes every child deserves comprehensive, quality healthcare starting at the local GP. Children’s health is evolving, and the role of the GP is more significant than ever, supporting families on their journey, walking with them, understanding their needs, finding the right pathway. The complexity of children’s needs has expanded beyond the simple day to day problems. As we learn more about the effects of a child’s early development and influences, we have come to realise we can do so much to make a difference. We can intervene earlier; we can change the trajectory of that child’s entire life. Andrew considers himself a kids GP and feels his calling or purpose in life is focused in this direction. Andrew works as an ‘everyday GP’, but his interests have become more focused on improving health and mental health outcomes for children and their caregivers. Following graduation from medical school at the University of Notre Dame, Fremantle, Andrew has achieved the FRACGP and completed further studies with the child health diploma. Andrew continues to advise both the RACGP and now also Emerging Minds as part of their course development. Andrew is also the host of the very insightful 'The Kids Healthy Network Podcast'. https://www.drandrewleech.com/ https://www.drandrewleech.com/podcasts
