New incubator participant shines a spotlight on mental health

The Centre welcomes Tina Chan and her venture Panic, Anxiety + Stress Support (PASS) Inc., a for-profit social enterprise that provides mental health support and awareness through the distribution of PASS kits. As an undergraduate student, Chan founded PASS Inc. in St. Paul's Greenhouse in 2015, another incubator in the social innovation ecosystem at the University of Waterloo. After completing her Masters of Science in Public Health & Health Systems in 2019, she has decided to make the Centre her home base and fully dedicate herself to her venture.
