Soul Talk is a young adults resource to help groups to go deeper with each other and grow in their understanding of several important mental/emotional health topics. It tackles some of the big issues that are tragically affecting our society today – issues like anxiety, depression and burn out.

Based on David J. Riddell’s ‘Living Wisdom’ material, each episode of Soul Talk begins with an introduction to the topic by counsellor and author Belinda Stott. Three individuals share their personal journey with the issue at hand, then Belinda shares practical tips and insights on how to find healing and support others in need. The resource also includes group discussion questions and space for personal sharing.
