June 2022

In June 2022, Champions promoted authentic conversations among men and their buddies and raise awareness for the issue of men and suicide.

Thank you to all of the funders of the Buddy Up campaign and to lead funder Viewpoint Foundation.

2022 Trophy Winners

Schlumberger is the winner of the 2022 Buddy Up trophy! The global energy services company will take the trophy home for their outstanding involvement in the campaign and for promoting authentic conversations among employees in the workplace.

“Prevention starts with all of us—you, me, our community,” said Michael Mee, Well Delivery Manager, Schlumberger, and Buddy Up Advisory Committee member. “Schlumberger believes in making a positive impact in the communities where we live and work and the Buddy Up campaign is a great opportunity to support mental health.”

Schlumberger’s achievement follows previous winners, Alberta Lawyers’ Assistance Society and Volker Stevin Contracting. Thank you, Schlumberger!

Big News for Buddy Up

At the end of Buddy Up Month in June 2022, we launched the year-long, expanded Buddy Up Campaign! There are activities to participate in anytime throughout the year as well as three week-long mini-Campaigns. Buddy Up Month will still happen in June.  The first week-long quarterly activity, Power Up, will take place Sept. 26 to Oct. 2 and will focus on strengthening the body and mind and building resilience.
