engaging youth to end the stigma.

The Vibrant Lives Foundation exists to provide scholarships to leaders who are actively bringing light to mental health issues. Valuing compassion, courage and creativity, beginning in 2016 grade 12 students will be able to apply with a creative exploration of mental health.

We also exist to actively engage and instigate conversations about mental health. We truly believe the first step in breaking down the stigma is to talk about it. To be a part of the conversation, head to our blog or follow our social channels.

Applications are currently open for students attending Chilliwack Senior Secondary. For information on how to apply, please visit the Chilliwack Senior Secondary website

The Vibrant Lives Foundation has partnered with in a sequoia in producing Karuna, a natural coffee body scrub. 10% of all purchases of Karuna go directly to the scholarship. To buy your scrub and #getmessy with us, head to in a sequoia.

We also accept any and all donations with gratitude.

The Vibrant Lives Blog is a place to share stories and reflections on mental health. We accept any and all submissions to be shared on the blog, particularly personal experiences with mental health or advice for bringing balance to our mental health.

Finally, we're always engaging in mental health conversations and bringing awareness to social media. Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or Instagram and be sure to check out our YouTube channel for moving mental health stories.
