Mental Health Advocate

For the past fifteen years, Loverly Sheridan has been a strong advocate for mental health awareness in adults and children. It’s a major component of her work with children and adults.

She has partnered and volunteered with various organizations, namely, NAMI, Mental Health of America, and the Jerome Golden Behavioral Center to raise awareness, and to promote more empathy, kindness, and compassion towards people with mental health struggles and chronic mental health disorders.

Ms. Sheridan began the “Buddy Bench and Take a Minute Bench,” campaigns, to promote mental health, and to create safe spaces in schools and in the workplace.

The campaigns continue to grow in the U.S and in the Caribbean, and make a difference in people’s lives. To learn more about these campaigns and to partner with Ms. Sheridan on a mental health campaign, click one of the buttons below.

Loverly Sheridan is also Founder of Buddy Ambassadors, which develops campaigns to raise awareness on bullying, and other mental and social issues affecting children and adults.

Buddy Ambassadors promotes kindness, empathy, compassion, generosity, and inclusion in the formative years of school aged kids through student-led projects. It is aimed at encouraging children to spread kindness, embrace inclusiveness, and to treat others the way they would like to be treated.

The BA Program is student-led and focused on the formative years, because we believe that the values that are inculcated in children during their formative years are what they will most likely embrace and act on as they grow.

We also believe that having children empower each other, and be directly responsible for their behavior will affect greater change. With this early intervention program, children will grow up to be more responsible, compassionate, and empathetic individuals that will be and do much good to our communities and world.
