Welcome to a Mind Wise podcast, presenting perspective and information about holistic mental health, health care, wellness, neuroscience, philosophy, and spirituality. I am your host, Ron Parks, M.P.H., M.D., writer, teacher, and consultant.
Today's video-podcast interview is with Rob Hosking, an inspired teacher and lecturer who shares his hero's journey, recovery, and awakening from his difficulties with traumatic exposures while doing public service and police work.

He is a motivational TEDx Speaker on happiness, mental health, and workplace well-being. Through a traumatic last shift, which saw him witness a suicide and his colleague dying in front of him, Rob awakened and looked into his happiness. Rob speaks about his own depression and mental health struggles.
