Doug Janzen, AACI, P.App is an AIC-BC member from Chilliwack, BC who is trying to raise awareness about Clinical Depression. His journey will start June 19, 2011 as he rides a 5 day, solitary road trip on his motorcycle from Chilliwack, BC to Inuvik, NT. “I thought that my journey; alone, through one of the most desolate, isolated and inhospitable areas of North America, could serve as a reflection of a depressive episode.”
