Elliece Ramsey

First hand experience with 

Depression and Social Anxiety

Elliece Ramsey is a twenty-four year old student living in Regina.  Elliece’s first experiences with depression and social anxiety began at thirteen years old, and several years after that she developed a compulsive body-focused repetitive behaviour. It took a decade from initial onset, and the help of mental health professionals including a psychiatrist and several therapists, for her mental health to recover to a manageable state. Elliece is currently working on a Bachelor’s of Science in biology at the University of Regina. In her spare time, she is an aspiring derby girl, an inveterate bookworm, and a multi-instrumentalist of dubious skill.

Dwayne Williams

Sharing his life journey to inspire

Hope, Strength and Courage

Dwayne is from Jamaica and came to Canada in 2005 to attend Victory Bible College in Calgary, Alberta. He says coming to Canada was a great opportunity;

He was given the privilege to be a part of another culture and to share some culture of his own.

He shares his personal experience with his life journey and to give hope, strength, and courage to others on theirs. He believes that this is not the end of his journey; it’s only the beginning, because the best is yet to come.

Wanda Campbell

Replacing Grief with Love

Wanda Campbell was born in Alberta but has lived in Saskatchewan most of her adult life.  She is the mom of two amazing children, one in Heaven and one on Earth.  Wanda's daughter Lindsay is a dedicated nurse working in small town Saskatchewan.  Her son Lane a was fun-loving, 17 year old just entering grade 12 when he was killed in a collision 3 km from their home along the #1 highway.  

Wanda has focused her grief journey on honoring the love she has for her son and strengthening the love as the connection to Lane.  Wanda is dedicated to continually learning ways to replace the grief and pain with the love for her children, and to sharing that knowledge with others who are also grieving.

Kalem Joseph Robert Moses

The Gift of Desperation

Kalem learned the disease of addiction at a very young age.  At age five he drank his first beer.  Every passing year manifested the disease in many ways and felt the trauma of this by the age of 18.  He lost is mother to a drug overdose and had the opportunity

to experience father hood early in life but lost custody of his kids which forced him to get sober. 

Kalem focuses on helping other recovering addicts

by speaking about his experience with addiction.

He has created a Hip Hop Album,  inspired by his recovery and it is called "Gift of Desperation".  He continues to work on himself and things from the past thought a 12 step program and his music.  He works towards a new way of life by staying clean from all substances and following his dream for music and being an amazing dad.
