John Bateman

John Bateman is a mental health advocate and Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors for the Robert Bateman Foundation.


John Bateman’s work as an Anxiety Canada Champion began in 2018 after he shared his enthusiasm for mental health and our organization.

Although John’s experience with anxiety began at a young age, it wasn’t until more recent years that he found relief through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). John is passionate about starting a conversation and sharing his experience with others in an effort to normalize anxiety.

On October 10th, 2019, John Bateman hosted  #OurAnxietyStories, where he interviewed dozens of Canadians who shared their lived experience with anxiety. #OurAnxietyStories was then transformed into #OurAnxietyStories – The Anxiety Canada Podcast, which now has 2 consecutive seasons.
