As part of national Mental Illness Awareness Week, ICMH in collaboration with community partners will be bringing Brent Seal to Victoria to speak about his experience as a young adult diagnosed with serious mental illness, and his journey of recovery. Through the support of professionals, family, and friends, Brent graduated from his SFU Business Class as Valedictorian, and started running ultra-marathons.
Brent dedicates his time to supporting and educating people of the value of mental health and wellness and exploring the outdoors – rock climbing, trail running and mountaineering around British Columbia throughout North America.
Brent is the Founder of Mavrixx – a social enterprise dedicated to supporting and inspiring young people to live great lives through wellness and adventure.
Brent believes that anyone can turn their biggest challenges into their biggest opportunities and build a great life through wellness.
Mark your calendars! Brent will be speaking in Victoria on October 8, 2015. The event will run from 6:30 -8:30. Location to be announced.
