PREPARED PATIENT BLOG

Patients and experts explore what it takes to find good health care and make the most of it.

Joshua R. Beharry is a 26-year-old from Vancouver, B.C. who suffers from depression. Since early 2011, he has made volunteering and advocating for mental health a primary focus of his life. Joshua has experience with anti-stigma, mental health and wellness promotion at the University of British Columbia. His newest project is Mental Health Point of View (MHPOV), a website that shares his experiences with anxiety, depression and attempted suicide. Josh hopes the site will help provide a more comprehensive look at mental illness from a first-person point of view. You can find him on Twitter at @mhpov.
