What does it take to achieve mental wellness in an increasingly complex and stressful world? Here-2-There 3.0: Your Climb to Mental Wellness is the third installment in the leadership series, and tackles the topic of mental health by exposing the stigmas and often hidden challenges on the journey to mental wellness. Be inspired by community leaders as they share their tools and coping mechanisms, and stories of determination, self-discovery, and strength to deal with internal adversities.
Here-2-There 3.0: Your Climb to Mental Wellness, features a series of engaging speakers, including Best-selling author Adam Hart, Expert in holistic health and wellness Dr Marita Schauch, Motivational speaker Brent Seal, and Author and sponsored athlete, Margo Talbot.
The event will be hosted by author, coach and lecturer Sam Thiara and mountaineer, social entrepreneur and investment professional Mike Schauch. “In the same vein as previous Here-2-There events, we wanted to create a space that promotes sharing, acceptance, and understanding”, says Thiara. “The more we are informed and talk openly about mental health, the better we are able to support each other”.
“Just as we have our physical wellness”, Schauch continues, “we also have and must focus on our mental wellness, and this is increasingly important in an increasingly complex and demanding world.”
In addition to the four dynamic speakers, the event will include is a live music performance by Vancouver violist virtuoso and composer Thomas Beckman, improvised to the awe-inspiring visual art of award winning photographer Eric Saczuk.
All profits from the event will benefit a local network of youth-led mental health enterprises.
