IAHNBO Recognizes Mental Health Awareness Week with Live Purple Partnership

LAS VEGAS, NV - 10/10/2018 — A Partnership to Fight Mental Health & Substance Abuse Issues Amongst Teens and Young Adults by Encouraging Healthier and Active Lives!

Henderson, NV – In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Weekthe International Association for Health and Nutrition Business Owners (IAHNBO) and Live Purple are proud to announce its charitable partnership and are excited to work together to raise awareness and prevention of substance misuse. As such – the IAHNBO is donating $2 for every monthly $27.00 paid subscription. Donations will be used to impact local communities by funding events, educational programs, and supplies like our Home Safety Kits.

 

"We have a responsibility to be a part of the solution, and we do that by our commitment to and partnership with Live Purple,” said IAHNBO Founder and President Lisza Crisalle. “They are doing the work every day, changing lives through education and tools to encourage healthier and active lives in teens and young adults dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues."

 

Since its initial launch, the IAHNBO set a goal of giving back to the community by donating funds to a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of healthy lifestyles. After researching several organizations, Live Purple proved to be a perfect fit. It’s innovative approach of addressing inactivity and mental health attracted IAHNBO to this organization. Through this partnership, IAHNBO and Live Purple will collaborate on additional efforts to raise awareness and garner conversations about substance abuse.

 

“Live Purple is proud to partner with IAHNBO to help further the mission to educate people about nutrition and fitness,” said Live Purple Founder Chris Finch. “We are excited to see this network of health and fitness professionals develop to have a great impact on the world.”
