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.
