REDEFINING MENTAL HEALTH
Mavrixx is a Vancouver-based social enterprise created to promote mental health and wellness to youth, professionals and organizations. Through speaking, consulting and our in house programs, we aim to shift the dialogue around mental health and offer support, resources and tools for young people to manage stress, perform at a high level and have more fun!
At Mavrixx, we are ambitiously determined to push the mental health conversation forward by empowering youth, service providers, companies and communities to address mental health in an inspiring way.
Meet Brent Seal
Founder & Head Trainer
In January, 2016, Brent became the first person living with schizophrenia to summit South America’s highest mountain – Aconcagua (22, 841 ft) and in June, 2016 he did the same on North America’s highest mountain – Denali (20,310 ft). Brent has shared his story for the past 10 years in the media and on stages across Canada to let people know that it’s ok to talk about mental health and that mental illness no longer has to be a life sentence. Brent created Mavrixx in 2014 to help redefine mental health so that people no longer have to struggle in silence.
