Jim Derick: Inspiration Through Optimism – Part 1 of 2
This week’s episode of Well Being Walks with Kip Hollister is the first part of a two-part series. Kip is joined by Jim Derick, President and Co-Founder of SAFE Coalition – a community organization committed to educating and supporting those affected by substance use disorder and mental health concerns across southeastern Massachusetts. Jim’s son, Jack, struggled with these issues which compelled Jim to create this organization. In the first episode, Jack is still with us. The second episode is recorded two months after Jack’s passing. This series is dedicated to him and his family.
Jim speaks on the importance of living life authentically and the profound steps he took to live in the present moment. He is a leader with a unique perspective on the world that can provide a positive outlook on the sometimes-harsh reality of everyday life. There is so much to gain from this week’s episode, and we invite you to listen and learn.

In honor of Jack, who tragically lost his battle with his illness on July 15, 2022.
