Moving Forward Community Access
short description
Provide access to affordable counselling to both the community and Lululemon employees.
3. Opportunity: Which pillar of well-being, and which aspect of that particular pillar, are being addressed by the idea? In what way does it influence a pillar? What type of individual and community would benefit from the idea?
We would encompass all aspects of well-being as counselling can support numerous areas of health in public spaces. This services would benefit all members of the community as it would break down barriers to accessing counselling services.
4. Innovation: Why is your idea unique, novel, and/or impactful? What will the future look like if we’re successful in bringing your idea to life? How does the proposed solution differ from existing solutions addressing human well-being?
This idea is unique as our mandate is to support anyone and everyone in their healing journey. This solution differs from preexisting ones as there are no waitlists, no criteria, and minimal finical burden on clients.
5. Action Plan: Please justify and briefly describe the major steps needed to make this idea a reality. Does the technology and understanding exist now? Is it likely to exist in the next 3-5 years?
We would need space to hold for counselling sessions of intakes to connect the community with counsellors. We would also need a data base to track all intakes and case files. currently, there are is some understanding of mental health, but there is still a lot of stigma associated to mental health.

    Moving Forward is an innovative and inclusive way of providing therapy to a range of individuals including many who otherwise wouldn’t have an opportunity to receive this type of support. It is much needed, undervalued and relevant to our current times. Please support them!
