Aidan’s mental illness emerged from a history of childhood abuse. Aidan has faced challenges such as nightmares, anxiety attacks, and even dissociation. Clinically, he has been diagnosed with Anorexia, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Dissociative Identity Disorder. Aidan initially sought support through peers online before seeking therapy. He also reached out to friends, professionals, and in times of crisis the support of Kids Help Phone.
Aidan wants others to know that the road to recovery isn’t always straightforward, but you can get there. He believes in ACT!ON for people across the mental health spectrum, particularly those who are either early in recovery, or are yet to come forward with their struggle. He now regularly speaks to high schools and conferences notably, the BC Patient Safety & Quality Councils Quality Forum, and the Vancouver Healthy Minds Youth Summit: Building a Mindful Community.
Aidan has made it his mission to reduce stigma and expand accessibility to professional care, he therefore launched SpeakBOX, a first of its kind company developing digital mental health treatment services paired with the support and inclusion of peer support programs. For Aidan, ACT!ON is part of the journey.
