At the Brain Energy Support Team (BEST), the superhero story has been an ongoing source of inspiration for us.
According to Robin Rosenberg, a clinical psychologist, superheroes allow us to find “meaning in loss and trauma, discovering our strengths and using them for a good purpose.”
Superhero stories also help us explore and imagine the possibilities in our own lives and in that of our community.
That is why we are thrilled to announce our very own BEST superhero, at the ready to support, encourage and inspire us!
Thanks to the creative, design and artistic collaboration between BEST team members Heather Wiech-Barnes and Chess Wiech-Barnes, meet Empowera and her alter-ego, Quinn Evergreen!
