285: From Burnout to Purpose

Originally Published April 11, 2023 Join Dr. Lycka and Chris Chandler-Yates for an inspiring conversation about resilience, personal growth, and living a life true to oneself. Learn how Chris turned his remarkable journey sailing across the Pacific and joining the New Zealand police force into a mission to support others, ensuring they too can lead fantastic lives.

About Chris Chandler-Yates: Chris is an American-Kiwi. who arrived in NZ in 2004. He joined the NZ Police in 2011 and after a seven-year career, during which time he protected The Rt Hon Sir John Key (New Zealand’s Prime Minister), he experienced severe burnout that caused him to leave the job he once loved.

After a journey of self-care, recovery, and personal development, he’s now hyper passionate about helping officers take charge of their mental health and significantly reduce the chance of burnout.  He lives to ensure others learn to see themselves so they don’t go through the pain he once experienced.
