Vancouver, BC: WIRTH Hats is excited to collaborate with TELUS Health to offer Canadians TELUS Health MyCare virtual counselling, so they can receive the support they need from their phone, whenever and wherever is convenient for them.
Proceeds from WIRTH Hat sales will go towards supporting the counselling fund, which covers costs of counselling for individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford it. WIRTH Hats are shipped to over 25 countries around the world as we continue to amplify the WIRTH mental health reach.
To apply for TELUS Health MyCare counselling support through WIRTH Hats, visit the WIRTH Hats counselling page. Counselling sessions will be granted to eligible individuals for a duration based on needs.
WIRTH Hats mission is two-fold:
- Reduce the stigma around mental health, counselling and therapy;
- Provide financial assistance for counselling and therapy for those who are unable to afford it.
WIRTH Hats continuously works towards building an inclusive culture, where people can share feelings and thoughts without stigma and fear. We believe providing affordable mental health counselling is crucial for healthier and happier individuals, families and communities.
“WIRTH Hats is extremely excited to collaborate with Telus Health MyCare to provide mental health counselling support to individuals and families unable to afford on their own. Telus Health MyCare has an amazing roster of mental health counsellors that are ready to support Canadians across the country.”
- Ben Miller, co-founder of WIRTH Hats
