Finnegan: Thanks for the invite, Spiffy! If you're trans or nonbinary, products aren't designed with your needs in mind. Both& is addressing this gap by creating a brand that designs in direct dialogue with the community.
Timothy: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Did you know that In South Africa, fewer than 10% of children and adolescents who need a mental health service receive it (The Child Gauge 2022), or that only 5% of the national healthcare budget is directed towards mental health? There is a growing appetite for new, scalable interventions that can increase coverage of mental health promotion and prevention services in underserved communities, where the majority of the population are uninsured and rely on under-funded state healthcare. Waves for Change is an award-winning South African non-profit organization that uses sport and physical activity to deliver evidence-based mental health prevention and promotion services in under-resourced communities.
Thanks for inviting me, Spiffy! Safety is a fundamental aspect of human existence. We need it to belong and to contribute meaningfully. But for some people—a lot of people—safety is not as accessible. In the workplace, it can be especially challenging for marginalized folks to show up authentically as a result of feeling unsafe. DEEP-ish gives organizations and individuals the language and skills needed to embed belonging, community, and psychological safety into their workplaces and spaces to foster healing and restoration.
