Jan Wong - Out of the Blue
Jan Wong worked as a journalist for almost 30 years including 20 as an award-winning reporter for The Globe and Mail. Then a story she covered and the backlash from it led to her becoming sick. She was diagnosed with clinical depression and at the height of her illness she couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, could barely talk with friends and couldn't write. Jan Wong also became entwined in a battle over sick leave and compensation with her employer and health insurer. Jan Wong wrote about her experience in a self-published book called Out of the Blue. She's now a professor of Journalism at Saint Thomas University and she was in our Fredericton studio.
