Harrison Wheeler is on a mission to help people embrace wellness at work through humour and creativity.
Harrison sparks actions of empathy, expression, and support into the daily routines of students, employees, and workplace partners. Simply put, Harrison helps people improve their mental well-being and provides organizations with clear communications and resources to make that possible.
Overcoming 10+ years in recovery (Bipolar 1, addiction, Guillian Barre Syndrome), Harrison attributes his creativity to have been a transformative force for self-actualization, leading him to overcome mental, physical, and spiritual adversity. Harrison is combining this lived experience with his post-graduate work in education and his creative talents to 'rebrand' mental health.
Harrison has been an annual conference host, a Vice Principal, and is the author of the YA novel "Jesters Incognito". He has won critical acclaim for his comedic acting, is a huge fan of funk music, graffiti, and his favourite movie is, unapologetically, the Nightmare Before Christmas.
As a Patient Advisor on the St. Joseph's Mental Health Quality Council and a trained peer support worker, Harrison is a powerful voice for mental wellness.
