The Calgary event features Victoria Maxwell and her live performance: Funny, You Don’t Look Crazy!
Victoria shares her true story in a live performance about her journey of recovery with mental illness from being a Safeway cashier, to wearing a backless hospital gown, to working with job coaches and finding her way back into employment.
It’s a story of mental health struggle and triumph when diversity in the workplace includes supporting mental health issues. Exploring stigmas about mental illness, mental health, and recovery creates the space for critical conversations that help build braver work-cultures. You’ll learn what changes and strategies are needed to create healthy, safe environments for those struggling with mental health in the workplace.
About Victoria:Victoria Maxwell has been recognized by CAMH as 150 most influential Canadians in the area of Mental Health. And guys,…. She is funny and entertaining all while educational.
Simply Benefits' National Sales Director Bonnie Wiebe is proud to be part of the Western Canada Dive In committee and looks forward to seeing you there.
