Overview

In this episode of What the Fundraising Podcast…

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, stress seems to be the main course on our daily menu. Yet, amidst the chaos, there is a sweet solace waiting to be savored when we choose to connect.

Jake Ernst, a therapist and clinical director of Straight Up Health in Toronto, Canada, specializes in working with young people and families facing challenging and stressful situations. He is a product of a close-knit family in a small town, and he developed a penchant for helping others early on. Despite the loss of his father in his teenage years, he found solace in connections, which led him to become a therapist. Moreover, through his work, Jake emphasizes the power of human connection, addressing modern stressors and advocating for solidarity through his podcast “This Isn’t Therapy” and the newsletter “Just Trying To Help.”

During today’s conversation, Jake emphasizes the importance of slowing down in a fast-paced world driven by worry, hurry, alarm, and overwhelm (WHOA). Jake believes in the mantra that “nothing is as urgent as it feels,” advocating for conscious reflection on personal capacity and priorities.

Ultimately, Jake’s approach centers on fostering healthier relationships, promoting community support, and recognizing the interconnectedness of individual and social well-being.
