Mental wellness should be a right,

not a privilege

Our Mission + Story

Be Inward Strong (BIS) is inspired by Paul Radkowski, a clinician who spent time working in the Northwest Territories. It was here where he observed, first-hand, how treatment barriers increase illness and early death. His idea was that, if you could not bring someone to resources like a counsellor, agency or other helpful option, then you should bring the resources to them.

Paul's first contribution to solving this problem was through the development of Inward Strong (Formerly 'Life Recovery Program'), which has since gone on to receive multiple awards and gain impressive recognition.

 

Today, with the support of Inward Strong and a team that is passionate about mental health and technology, BIS is building upon Paul's original vision. Our mission is to make mental health therapy and support accessible to anyone who needs it.

 

To achieve this, we'll continue to build out our resource toolbox by partnering with top-tier mobile programs, therapies and other mental health supports, like Inward Strong. We strive to be the community where charities, outreach organizations and companies that support mental health - and breaking the stigma around it - can easily leverage each other to make the most impact.

Mental Wellness For All Starts Here, With You 

 

We’ve set a bold launch goal of raising sponsorship to offer one million youth, people in remote communities and those in need complimentary access to our award-winning Inward Strong (formerly 'Life Recovery Program') virtual therapy platform. 

Help us reach this goal, and break the mental health stigma, by becoming an outreach sponsor. As a sponsor, you’ll be recognized on our site and, as an additional 'thank you', you'll receive one month of complimentary access to Inward Strong for your friends, family or employees.

Here's How You Can Help

Make a donation to support community members who require financial assistance to access the Inward Strong therapy platform.

Run a 'Be Inward Strong' Campaign to drive awareness and offer community members in need unlimited access to mental health education and therapy.

We're here to support your community. If you are a not-for-profit or charity, and have members struggling with their mental health, reach out to us to set up an all-access Inward Strong portal for your organization.
