A-W-O-L founder, Mike, wants to invite you to "Escape for a Moment", and do the things you enjoy. Whether that is physical activity, or being mindful of the fuel you are putting into your body, A-W-O-L wants to help raise awareness and increase the discussion surrounding mental wellness.
A-W-O-L is proud to be Saskatchewan born, and wants to promote positive mental wellness for all Saskatchewanians. Mike founded A-W-O-L based on the idea that anyone at any age in any circumstance can grow and become comfortable in their own skin.
A-W-O-L is typically coined as a military acronym meaning "absent without leave," but Mike believes it can be a symbol for taking a step back from day-to-day life to reevaluate, refocus and reinvigorate your mind and body.
On the A-W-O-L website you can find different discussion forums to learn coping methods, or new songs to listen to if you're feeling down, or anxious. You can also read the A-W-O-L blog, where Mike and friends, dive into the real issues surrounding mental health. If you are so inclined, you can utilize the resources page on the A-W-O-L website to find mental wellness services in Saskatchewan, Canada and globally.
Lastly, you can head to the A-W-O-L store and check out the merchandise available for purchase there.
The hope is to encourage as many people as possible to "Escape for a Moment" to focus on their own mental and physical health.
Thank you and enjoy!
