Mental Health Issues Affect Us All… Even CEOs
Gillian Stein is the CEO of iconic Canadian photography brand Henry’s. She also has bipolar disorder. Learn about Gillian’s journey, from enduring her first terrifying bipolar episode as a teenager, to travelling a long, never-straight pathway to diagnosis and treatment, to learning lifelong strategies for managing her mental health—all while becoming a successful businesswoman and ultimately taking the reins as the fourth generation to lead her family’s long-standing business. As a founding board member of the Henry’s Foundation, striving to destigmatize mental health for all Canadians, Gillian is proud to share her story to show that executives with mental illness not only exist, but they can be tremendously successful.
