This is a time of mental health crisis, with at least 1 in 5 Canadians having mental illness, suicide being the second leading cause of death for children and teens, and each week of 500,000 employees miss work due to mental illness.
FamilySparks is a for-profit, social impact company located here in Victoria with the mission of providing mental wellness solutions that improve lives. We were founded by Dr. Jillian Roberts - a child psychologist for over 20 years, an author, a professor and mom to three children. Her clinical expertise and down-to-earth ideology are the foundation for our work, with the goal of helping people thrive, rather than survive.
Now we are building upon Jillian’s foundational ideology by offering our impact-focused Employee Assistance Program (EAP), creating books for children & parents and presenting speaking events for private companies and the public. As we grow, we plan to develop mental wellness apps and software in 2020/2021. Learn more at familysparks.com
