thanks for being here!
I began my journey in therapy nearly three years ago. I began attending therapy for many reasons, I needed it, and it's lead me on a path I couldn't have ever anticipated.
I live in a small oilfield-centric city in Northern Alberta. Here, adequate mental health care is hard to come by, especially for men. The population is overwhelmingly male and transient, the average age is 31.
My last job at a brick & mortar was working for a small oilfield company. I performed administrative tasks and managed marketing.
With a heavy heart, last year I was tasked with planning a fundraiser to honor the life of one of my late coworkers who died by suicide.
We raised nearly $10000 to donate to our local Suicide Prevention Resource Center. But it isn't enough. I knew I needed to do more and do better!
I'm on a mission, because mental health care matters.
So I decided to support those on the front lines to change more lives and save more lives.
