Jessica VandenBussche initiated the Strong Free and Happy Across Canada tour in response to her personal experiences and formal education. Through residence experiences at university, conversations with fellow instructors at the Ontario Police College, and humanitarian work in Ukraine, Jessica has gained both a passion and understanding of the importance of mental health. Experiences with depressive symptoms, and the difficulties associated with finding/accessing treatment have inspired her to take action for those who have, are, will or could meet mental health challenges of their own. After learning of the benefits of exercise on the brain in her BSc Kinesiology studies, Jessica has naturally combined her passions into an experience of hope, mountains, bugs, empowerment, cold, wind, strength, joy and connection to be shared by many.
