Show Notes

#SickNotWeak - Michael Landsberg (veteran TSN personality) drops by to kvetch all things mental health. Toronto, Canada based, Landsberg founded SickNotWeak as a hashtag, which grew into a movement for increasing awareness for GAD and depression, while using his sports networks as a baseline to grow it from. Learn all about the different strategies and skills Michael has developed over the years to fight his own mental health battles, and how he is helping corporate culture overcome its' stigmas when it comes to mental health in the workplace.

Michael has been a prominent figure in Canadian sports journalism since the early '80s and has continued to host his own show from his home during these Pandemic times. And you can also catch his documentary, “Darkness and Hope: Depression, Sports and Me" on TSN.ca, which earned a Canadian Screen Award nomination in 2013.
