About us

Briefly,

We are scientists, students, health professionals, influencers & advocates from Canada with one goal: to openly and honestly talk about mental health.

Our science-based content is designed to transform the way we communicate and bring mental wellbeing within everyone’s reach.

“I believe that through our wellness and mental health content, we have the potential of creating a brand that will improve the everyday lives of millions.” -  Justin Lessard-Wajcer, Founder & CEO

We work with international leaders and out-of-the-box thinkers to offer organisations and our community turn-key mental health content & services. You can catch us online, offline, in-person, on the air... everywhere.

So join us now and together let’s begin a dialogue that can make life easier and put all of us on the road to good health. #iamnurau
