INSIDE THE VILLAGE: From grieving son to mental health champion

Noah Irvine has written hundreds of letters to politicians, advocating for Canadians struggling with mental illness and addictions. If you read his book, you'll understand why he's fighting so hard

Welcome back to Inside the Village, a one-of-a-kind podcast where all news is local — and no topic is off-limits.

On this week's episode, we catch up with an inspiring young man from Guelph who turned a difficult childhood into a mission for change (with a little help from Village Media).

Noah Irvine is the author of a powerful new book: Learning to Live: From the Loss of My Parents to Mental Health Advocate. If you care about improving Canada's health care system for people suffering from mental illness or addictions, it is a must-read.

Launched last year, Inside the Village is a news and current affairs podcast that provides a weekly window into some of the best local journalism from across Village Media's chain of Ontario newsrooms. The program also explores bigger-picture issues that impact people across the province.

Every episode is available on this news site /insidethevillage. If you prefer the audio version, it is available wherever you find your favourite podcasts.
