WHAT IS ‘WHAT REALLY WORKS?’

‘What Really Works?’ Is a mental health podcast for young people!

We remove the ‘clinical’ jargon and just chat honestly about our experiences and what we’ve found to work in our lives in a down-to-earth way (with the odd joke too)! 

So you can expect to hear all about the good and bad we’re experiencing, as well as some tools and tricks we can use to support our mental health and well-being right now and in the long term.

WHO ARE THE HOSTS?

‘What Really Works?’ is hosted by Olivia and Beki. They are both in their twenties (handy since the podcast is tailored for young people) and want to create open conversations about mental health!

Olivia

Olivia is the Peer Program and Practice Lead at CMHA Kelowna. In the podcast she shares her personal knowledge and experience of mental health and supporting other’s. You’ll also hear her love for hiking and sarcasm in the episodes.

Beki

Beki is the Discovery College Lead at CMHA Kelowna. She shared her learned knowledge about well-being in episodes. If you listen carefully you’ll notice it’s not an Australian accent you’re hearing, but a British one!

WHAT TOPICS DO YOU DISCUSS?

On ‘What Really Works?’ we chat about all things that can impact our mental health. So we have episodes on topics such as anxiety, body image, and burnout.

But we also discuss topics that might not come straight to our mind when we think about mental health, including procrastination, rejection, and people-pleasing (just to name a few)!

LISTENING TO ‘WHAT REALLY WORKS?’

‘What Really Works?’ release a podcast episode bi-weekly and can be found on most podcast streaming platforms. You can also check out our episodes here!

While we say ‘What Really Works?’ is a podcast for young people, you really can be any age to listen! We’ve had listeners from all different ages tell us they enjoy our episodes and find them supportive.

At CMHA Kelowna and Discovery College, our main priority is always our community’s well-being. Following the advice of the Canadian Government and to ensure the safety of everyone who is due to take a Discovery College course, we are choosing to postpone our in-person courses at this moment in time due to COVID-19.
