MY STORY

Paula Toledo is an impassioned TEDx speaker, writer and poetic storyteller. She leverages her blog, music and social influence to initiate change by raising awareness for positive mental well-being practices. 

Her story is one of hope. One of incredible determination to not only get through the hardest days, but to stand up for herself and live the life she wanted to live. Paula is on a mission to share how she achieved this and pass on the positive daily habits she carries with her today.
— Dukes and Duchesses Sussex/Cambridge 'Heads Together' Charity

‘H.A.T.S. Off’, her proprietary self-referred mental well-being social prescription, encourages people to incorporate Humanity, Arts & Awareness, Travel (Discovery) and Sports into their daily wellness routine.  

Paula’s background as an artist and marketing professional, working for Fortune 500 companies, combined with her personal tragic loss of her husband to mental illness and suicide have all led to the purposeful life and business she leads today. Paula shares hope by facilitating mental well-being practices at home, in schools and in corporate environments. She supports social prescription; the use of arts and true social and heart-felt connections, as a way to promote mental well-being and mitigate feelings of isolation, depression, and anxiety. 

Paula has been featured by Movember Canada, the Dukes and Duchesses of Sussex/Cambridge Mental Health Charity, ‘Heads Together’, and as a regular Mental Well-being correspondent on Global TV Montreal.
