This Week: Be There: Eating Disorder w/ Kenzie Brenna
Kenzie Brenna is an actor, creator, influencer and mental health advocate. This week she joins Jer and Bri in the beautiful city of Toronto to discuss all things mental health! After all, it is Mental Health Week! We take a deep dive into Kenzie's past and current struggles with an eating disorder. From being convinced that all of her food was being secretly poisoned, to committing self-harm we talk about the ways that Kenzie’s mental health spiralled for the worst. We also discuss how she wished the people in her life could have been there for her!
This weeks episode is also meant to spread awareness about the new mental health resource initiative launched by Jack.org called Be There. Just talking about mental health isn’t enough. We need the knowledge, skills and confidence to step up and be there for one another and this is where Be There comes into play. For more information head on over to bethere.org now.

Who is Sickboy Podcast?
Sickboy Podcast is hilarious, ridiculously insightful and absolutely determined to break down the stigma associated with illness and disease! The show started with three best friends who recognized that when faced with difficult situations, illnesses and diseases, people tighten up, they get awkward, and they simply don't know what to say. Taking the lead from Jeremie's life long battle with Cystic Fibrosis, the boys help people understand that sometimes the best way to deal with illness, disease and life is simply to laugh. Join the conversation every Monday over on iTunes, Soundcloud, Google Play or wherever you get your podcast fixin's
Brian has a love for competition, challenges, and adventure. Making other people smile is his ultimate purpose in life, but he also thinks it's important not to take yourself so seriously - at the end of the day your time here is short, so make the most of it!
Jeremie is a multi award winning professional actor and yoga instructor who happens to live with a genetic lung disease called Cystic Fibrosis. He is an advocate for grabbing life by the balls and never letting go. He is married to a super babe of a wife named Bryde, and they own a big goofy dog named Bigby.
Taylor is a thrill seeking, adventure and travel loving human. If he's not snowboarding or hanging around Jeremie and Brian, he's running yoga studios with his life long lover Kyla. Or playing video games...with Jeremie and/or Brian
