S03E14 - Michael Handley (Red Six) pt3

It's no secret Mike Handley, founder of Red Six App, is passionate about the app and his service to the veteran and general community. In the concluding episode Mike we focus our attention to the Red Six app, its purpose, features, future developments and the positive impact that it's contributing toward lowering the suicide rate amongst veterans.

Mike also touches on the applications of the app in the First Responder/Emergency Services community and amongst current serving members. Being passionate and of service also has it's downsides....unfortunately there's haters and those so eager to attack the people who give so much back to the community. Painstakingly Mike shares his experiences at how hurtful being on the receiving end of this negative behaviour can be and how he calls upon the people and those in his immediate network looking after his "SIX" when he's in need of a familiar voice or non-judgemental chat to validate his feelings as well as being consistent with his self-care.
