Winnipeg

Bryan is 20 years old and currently lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Bryan attends the University of Winnipeg, where he is pursuing a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Performance & English literature. Bryan’s passion for mental health awareness and education came after he was diagnosed with mental illness almost six years ago. Since then, Bryan has made it his mission to increase awareness and normalise the conversation around mental health. Over the years, Bryan has had the opportunity to share his story with many people and has worked to educate his community about the stigma surrounding mental health and mental illness. Bryan joined the Jack.org network three years ago and is now the Lead of the  Chapter at UWinnipeg, as well as being an active Jack Talks speaker. In his spare time, you may find Bryan teaching his weekly theatre class, singing obnoxiously in his car, or sipping Starbucks while wearing his favourite cardigan!
