The World Health Organization has stated that approximately 450 million people worldwide struggle with mental illness and the “need for action on mental health is indisputable and urgent”. Life Support Mental Health Inc. (“Life Support”) is committed to a vision where mental health issues are treated like any other aspect of health…without judgement, with support, treatment and a clear path forward.
Life Support is incredibly proud to announce our Mental Health Champions (“Champions”) – a team of advocates who share a passion for, and commitment to, creating positive, actionable change in our communities and for those affected by mental health challenges. Directed by Michelle Cameron Coulter (Canadian Olympic gold medallist, leader and best-selling author) and led by Rob Riggle (actor, military veteran and mental health advocate), our Champions will assist in the advocacy and build awareness of innovative and accessible mental health tools such as Mental Health Check.
Mental Health Check is a confidential, online clinical support tool that provides a comprehensive and evidence-based assessment of an individuals’ current, mental and emotional health. The results of this online assessment help triage mental health issues to a qualified and issue-relevant mental health practitioner.
Each of our Champions has a unique and deeply personal journey with mental health and wellness. They believe that, in the same way an individual goes to the doctor and dentist for an annual check-up, all individuals should have a yearly ‘Mental Health Check’ to proactively incorporate mental wellness as a part an approach to holistic health.
Meet our Champions, read their stories and join us in “indisputable and urgent” action as we advocate for, and proactively create successful mental wellness outcomes around the globe.
