How KPMG GVA is supporting wellness and destigmatizing illness
By CPABC; Published in CPABC in Focus
Casey Chung, CPA, didn’t set out to become a mental health advocate. But in early 2018, during his first busy season as an articling student with KPMG, he received some devastating news that would start him on the path to advocacy. “It was really challenging for me to focus on work while this was happening in my personal life,” he says. "I also became curious about how I could best support others. It started by learning about my own mental health.” At the time, however, Casey wasn’t sure what resources were available to him at KPMG. He also questioned whether his situation warranted whatever support was available. And he certainly didn’t feel comfortable opening up to colleagues—at least, not at first.
