Part 2 - A Conversation w/ Morgan Beaudry Road Ahead Counselling - Truck Focus Podcast Episode #62

Friends in the Industry -


In today's episode, I am excited as this is Part 2 of my conversation with Morgan Beaudry, owner of Road Ahead Counselling about professional drivers' trauma and the need to provide a safe place for them to share their stories.


Check out the interview now!





I am excited as this interview is part of our We Got This - Mental Health series, and is part 2 of 2 with Morgan. This series is dedicated to exploring Mental Health. I will be interviewing a number of professionals that will help us navigate what exactly is Mental Health, and offer guidance on actionable steps we can take each day to protect and ultimately strengthen our own mental health. *disclaimer - the purpose of our series is to educate, encourage, and empower and to not prevent or discourage anyone from seeking medical attention.


Throughout Morgan's journey, she has learned the importance of sharing your story, especially after a traumatic experience takes place, such as a motor vehicle collision. Far too often does the conversation stop after someone hears "the driver was not deemed at fault" after the collision, but there is so much more to it than that.


Learn more about Knights of the Road, an initiative Morgan lead to help professional drivers share their story after dealing with traumatic collisions.

Morgan recently opened Road Ahead Counselling, a practice that puts you in the driver's seat and, together, you will explore past and present factors complicating your life. Morgan uses techniques from narrative to gestalt to genograms, together you can find a path that moved you toward who and what and how you want to be.


With person-centered, solution-focused, and goal-driven methods, you'll work together to find a way through the pain, confusion, trauma, and uncertainty. Together, you and Morgan will leverage the tools and gifts you already have to move you forward toward your short and long-term goals.

For anyone that has worked in the transportation industry longer than a minute knows, at some point or another, we all experience challenges that put a strain on our mental health. A number of examples in my own experience come to mind, such as operating a commercial vehicle in traffic, planning trucks and a piece of equipment breaks, etc, and having to navigate through these challenges.


As we navigate through these challenges and ultimately create our own victories, all of this action has an impact on our mental health. Possibly you are feeling less like yourself over the last few months?


I know I have.


That is why this series is so important to me and my own journey, and I am excited for the impact it will have on the lives of those in our industry that continue to create success each day while battling various challenges.


We need to all understand that our mental health needs to be taken seriously, and there are a number of actions we can take each day to protect and strengthen our own mental health.


There are also situations that require medical attention. Regardless of where we are at today, I look forward to all of us making strides to become better.


Most importantly, if you are in a mental state where you feel lost, confused, or uncertain - please reach out. If that means reaching out to myself, to others in our community, to a medical professional, or whomever - please make sure you reach out.
