Breaking Boundaries in Mental Health: Celebrating a Milestone Day with Caribbean Utilities Company, Ltd. and I Am Here!

On Thursday, April 11th, history was made in the Cayman Islands as our esteemed partner CUC embarked on a transformative journey with I Am Here.

Over 150 of dedicated CUC Team Members embarked on the I Am Here Tribe Members course, marking a monumental leap forward in mental health and wellbeing initiatives in the Caribbean.

Imagine: 150 individuals empowered to ‘Show You Care’ to colleagues in need, fostering a culture of support and understanding. These invaluable skills aren’t confined to our workplace; they ripple through families, friendships, and communities, touching countless lives.

We owe immense gratitude to the visionaries behind this movement. CUC CEO, Mr. Richard Hew, exemplifies unwavering commitment.

Miss Joni Kirkconnell’s steadfast support has been instrumental since day one.

Miss Jeanine Burger and the entire *Wellbeing Steering Committee have tirelessly championed this cause, turning dreams into reality.

A heartfelt thank you also goes to Lorna Murphy, the passionate representative of I Am Here Cayman Islands, whose dedication shone bright as she led the enlightening and emotional session.

Lorna’s journey, from first meeting Jim Breen during their Cycle Against Suicide days to the shores of Grand Cayman, highlights the global impact of spreading the message that it’s ok not to feel ok; and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help.

To our incredible CUC family: Your enthusiasm and dedication have made this journey possible. Together, we’re paving the way to normalise vital conversations around mental health and wellbeing, ensuring a brighter, healthier future for generations to come. 🧡💚

Let’s continue this transformative work together!
