Kelly Britt Davis works in a rural health care facility in Blue River, Oregon. After navigating the first six months months of Covid, the clinic burned to the ground in the Holiday Farm Fire, a wild fire that consumed 175,000 acres and more than 500 structures at the end of Labor Day weekend.
Our interview started by talking about the wild fire and moved on to address issues mental health, addiction, loss and recovery.
At 15:10, a hummingbird landed on Kelly's microphone and she said, "That's my mom."
Fair warning, that Kelly talks openly about her past challenges with mental health and the times she tried to take her own life. If you struggle as well, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255.
