Well, it’s that time of year again... “Movember”! In honour of this, we want to bring some attention to an awesome initiative right here in Canada that was co-created between the Movember Foundation and The University of British Columbia.

My name is Sophie

From birth, you could tell there was something different about me. I would always cry and never sleep as a baby.  As the years went by, things just got harder and more complicated. Doctors refused to diagnose me with anything. Later in life, I struggled to overcome heroin and alcohol addiction. After a suicide attempt, I was finally diagnosed with bipolar disorder which changed my life for the best. The medications and therapy finally gave me a taste what it’s like to be happy. I made this video to increase awareness about mental illness.
