82. The Centred Tradie (Mental Health Challenges)

Daniel Gaebler has an ambitious five-year goal – to reduce the number of suicides in Australia to zero.

Dan writes about confronting life events, and his mental health journey, and exposes his own extreme vulnerability in order to “help just one person”.  The book will speak loudest to men, especially in the trades (like plumbing), and encourage them to reach out to their friends and family, or different modalities of therapists, to help them get back on track and make life better for themselves and their loved ones.  I speak with Dan about how he recognized that he needed help, where trauma originates and how it can manifest later in life, the impact that poor mental health and suicide have on loved ones and communities in general, and the many people - therapists, coaches, mentors, and his wife -  that helped Dan along his journey. Discussion Points Dan’s first signs that he needed help Rage, trauma, and frustration as a teen Connecting with others, taking the first step to getting help Writing a book had tremendous healing power Love languages, Dan’s wife, and overcoming trauma Mental health in business - examples of helping team members Things you can do to improve your mental health Simple things we can do right now? Notice, listen, and ask, “Are you okay?” ...
