Lyle and Susan Labardee met while serving as Firefighter EMTs during college, where he graduated with a master’s degree in counseling and she pursued a degree in nursing. Like other first responders, they were impacted by post-traumatic stress on the job. They were also inspired by the support they received from professionals trained to help first responders cope with that type of stress. Because of those experiences, Lyle and Susan began a lifelong mission to come alongside those who serve.
Originating with Crisis Care Network (CCN) in 1997, Amplified Life's roots started strong and run deep. Prior to its acquisition by R3 Continuum, CCN developed the first nationwide, 24/7, 911-like dispatch system for EAPs in need of onsite crisis response services for their client companies.
Building on CCN’s reputation as a proven and trusted provider of crisis response services for EAPs, Amplified Life's founders went on to develop industry-leading, technology-enabled behavioral health resources, and they were among the first to deliver an award-winning, HIPAA-compliant web app (CrisisCoach) in 2005.
Founded In 2012, Amplified Life Media continues the mission to equip those who serve by delivering custom-branded media for EAPs and the nearly half-million lives they support.
We understand there are different views on whether or not to hyphenate "wellbeing." We’ve chosen not to for one reason—the absence of the hyphen suggests greater integration between "well" and "being.” In our experience, the essence of “wellbeing” requires a sense of wholeness that comes through the integration of how we think, feel, and behave.
We hope when you see "wellbeing," you’ll see what we see—wholeness.
