A Comunity of Care

The purpose of BIS is to provide Charities and Community groups that support individuals struggling with mild-to-moderate mental health issues (depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationships, boundaries and addiction) with anonymous access to the Inward Strong platform for their members.   

Inward Strong is more than an award-winning digital wellness system, it's a community of people and companies that believe everyone deserves the opportunity to "Be Inward Strong". The Inward Strong platform helps people take control of their mental wellness, improve mental fitness, and build psychological capital. 

The BIS program is possible because of Tokens of Gratitude™ Individuals and organizations accumulate tokens each time they engage with the platform to boost their Mental Health. The Inward Strong Community's pooled tokens empower BIS to extend program access to those seeking support.


A therapeutic approach. 

Inward Strong was crafted by seasoned therapists to make their knowledge and best-practised techniques, typically reserved for therapy sessions, available 24/7 to all who need it. Presented by licensed clinicians, the program's videos establish a therapeutic connection.

Our Story


We're on a mission to make mental health a right, not a privilege


Clinician Paul Radkowski witnesses the devastating impact of limited mental health and addiction services in the Northwest Territories firsthand. Motivated by this dire need, he endeavors to create a program that brings evidence-based resources from the frontline online, offering accessibility to anyone in need.


Upon returning to his practice in Waterloo, Ontario, clinician Paul Radkowski, alongside fellow clinician Monique Peats, embarked on designing and co-founding the Life Recovery Program. This wellness system aims to provide remote support and care for individuals grappling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.


LRP-Inward Strong has garnered numerous awards and earned significant recognition. It has been court-mandated in both the US and Canada. Most importantly, this wellness system has positively impacted thousands of individuals and families, contributing to the preservation of jobs, relationships, and lives.


A newly revitalized platform and wellness system, centered on enhancing mental fitness, psychological capital, and aiding individuals with mild-to-moderate mental health concerns, is introduced under the name Inward Strong.

The Program Creators

Paul (1).png

The Inward Strong wellness system was founded by Paul Radkowski and Monique Peats, seasoned psychotherapists, subject matter expert authors, and professional speakers, boasting over 55 years of collective experience.

"Our motivation stemmed from witnessing too many individuals suffering due to a lack of access to therapy and the gaps within the system. With a longstanding therapist shortage and many regions lacking sufficient care, we felt compelled to develop a platform accessible to everyone, round-the-clock."

Our Wellness System comprises a comprehensive set of evidence-based therapies and techniques delivered digitally and through video, addressing a broad range of mental health afflictions while also providing effective preventative and proactive mental fitness resources.

The award-winning system has been tested, peer-reviewed, or professionally recognized by McMaster University, CAMH, Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals, American Counselling Association, EENet magazine, and SPARK magazine.
