Being a Mental Health Advocate True Champion for HealthiNation

A couple of weeks ago, Brendan Anderer, Vice President of Programming and Executive Producer at HealthiNation, contacted me. HealthiNation has created a series on their site (an overall health video site) for who they call "True Champions." These are people who are extraordinary advocates for an illness and live with the illness themselves. Brendan said he wanted to film me and make me a part of their series.

Now, in all honesty, I didn't take it overly seriously. I get a lot of offers for a variety of things and, often, once people are told that I'm all the way on the West Coast of Canada, they are no longer interested.

But, surprisingly, HealthiNation still was.
