You Are Collective was founded on the need to fill huge gaps in the mental health community for proper care, support, resources, and information. That hasn't changed. Come check out our presentation at Purppl's #ChangeUP and five other absolutely incredible social enterprises in our community doing GOOD.
We wanted to share our stories and what we go through day to day to help each other feel supported in our mental health and illness. Real talk from real people living together through mental illness every day: the YAC At Us Series.
We are thrilled to be announcing our partnership with Connect Counselling in Kelowna BC to help reduce the waitlist and inaccessibility when it comes to trauma counselling. The devastating part is that this is not only a Connect Counselling issue, or an Okanagan issue. The idea of waitlists, lack of availability, and limited services stretches far beyond what we can even comprehend.
We can't deny the monumental impact counselling has had on us, our mental health, our relationships, our boundaries, and so many other things. It seemed kismet that we take our company to the next level with a dedication to bringing counselling to EVERYONE. However that's going to work, we'll do it.
When You Are Collective was first created, it was an idea to empower others going through mental health and illness challenges. A way to remember we are all STRONG and BRAVE regardless of what we're going through and that maybe the reminder of that could impact someone. So we forged ahead!
