“Trying to support a child who’s suffering and is going through some real difficult stuff around hospitalization and medication… that was something that was kind of outside of my toolbox.”

— Craig Wilson


How do we cope when the people closest to us are struggling? Especially when we ourselves struggle to understand their challenges?


This episode of the Living Jewishly Podcasts is an instalment of What’s In Your Toolbox?, a podcast about mental health and the tools that we use to cope and to heal. In this episode, host Bobby K speaks with Craig Wilson, a free-spirited Torontonian, avid snowboarder, and father of four daughters, about how he developed new mental health skills when one of his children was diagnosed with Bipolar I while in her late teens.


Tune in to learn how Craig and his family dealt with his daughter’s diagnosis, the challenges that they worked through together, and the shortcomings of the healthcare system.


“My toolbox has just been learning that my daughter is everything to me, and that I’ll walk over hot coals to support her.”

— Craig Wilson


This‌ ‌episode discusses:‌ ‌

  • The mental health tools that Craig developed in the wake of his daughter’s diagnosis
  • The tools that Craig’s daughter uses to stay healthy and balanced 
  • What can happen when the wrong medication is prescribed — and why patience can be required
