TLP 353 – Post Traumatic Growth with WTTA & SDIA
Jun 29 2020 112 mins On Talking Lead this week: Our guests include Michael Sodini former president of Eagle Imports and Founder of Walk The Talk America (WTTA) and Sergeant Major Lance Nutt USMC (Retired) and Founder of Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA). With COVID 19 still prevalent and the uncertainty on when a vaccine will be available paired with the social divide caused by the protesting , rioting and looting across the Nation, our mental health is being stressed to the max. These two non-profit organizations exist to help both our citizens and our Nation's protectors understand and manage good mental health stability and get people the help they need. Walk The Talk America: (WTTA) Our goal is to raise awareness and create a change in the misunderstandings in regard to mental illness and firearms by bringing together industry leaders to reduce gun violence, negligence, suicide and the trauma created by these events. Develop programs for suicide prevention, firearms negligence, trauma mitigation, and child safety. Sheep Dog Impact Assistance: (SDIA) exists to engage, assist and empower our nation’s “Sheep Dogs” (Veterans, Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue, and EMS personnel) to #GetOffTheCouch and reengage in living an active, meaningful and productive life with a renewed sense of purpose. The US Department of Veterans Affairs states that more than 6,000 veterans die by suicide each year, and other statistics show that twice as many First Responders die by suicide than in the line of duty. Post-traumatic stress, injuries, depression, addiction, and isolation plague our Sheep Dogs to the point of thinking about and/or attempting suicide. By gathering together Sheep Dogs who have suffered similar traumas and experiences for an opportunity to continue serving, we strive to prevent suicides in our Veteran and First Responder communities.

Amanda Lynn Mayhew is the host of Canada's top outdoor hunting show called JUST HUNT. The approach to Just Hunt is simple, be yourself, hunt, fish, travel and capture all of it on camera to share with the world.  In a world of questionable politics, 'flexible' values and rampant sickness, Just Hunt breeds empowerment and positive inspiration.  Amanda Lynn has a knack for keeping her audience engaged with her stories and episodes that are always filled with a combination of education and outdoors adventures.  Check out Women's Hunting Association- A Division of Just Hunt®.
