Born and raised in South Africa, Josh has traveled to over 24 countries, living and working in many of them for extended periods of time.  He claims, however, that the most fascinating place he explored is the mysterious terrain of his own mind.  He actively uses his lived experience of being diagnosed with bipolar type 1 in combination with his education (BA in Psychology from the University of South Africa and MA in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena) to integrate mental health and faith.  He has opportunities to do this, as well as to contribute towards ushering in new paradigms for mental health diagnoses, in his work for MHS IHOT North as a Peer Support Specialist serving treatment-resistant individuals with diagnoses, as well as through his roles with NAMI and Agile Restoration.



Neurodiversity Gifts – Unpack the Potential of Being Wired Slightly Differently!  


When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. It’s time we rethink and reduce the stigma of mental health. This session offers you a fresh set of lenses that allow you to discover and embrace your unique gifts with awe.  Powerful insights from science, psychology, philosophy, spirituality, and current research will empower you with authenticity and a renewed sense of acceptance and possibilities. Join dynamo South African Josh (diagnosed bipolar) as he helps you unpack the game-changing gifts of neurodiversity. This exciting approach is endorsed by NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental San Diego, and studied by the University of San Diego.
