At Amplified Life Media, we're continuously creating better ways to bring wellbeing to work and life.

We're writing, customizing, producing, and delivering wellbeing media to EAPs, behavioral healthcare organizations and other entities involved in the delivery of health and wellness.

Lyle and Susan Labardee first brought their healthcare, EMS and clinical expertise to the EAP industry in 1997 and established their first "network", Crisis Care Network (CCN), which quickly became the leading provider of onsite crisis response services for EAPs nationwide.

In the years that followed the transiton of CCN to R3 Continuum, Lyle and Susan Labardee advanced the use of technology in healthcare with the development of the award winning CrisisCoach web application and one of the first HIPAA compliant apps in behavioral health.

Building on their experience bringing technology-enabled, innovative solutions to EAPs, Lyle and Susan launched Amplified Life Media in 2012. Amplifed Life Media delivers engaging, Custom branded, interactive wellbeing media to EAPs and over 250,000 covered lives.

We understand, there are different viewpoints out there on whether or not to hyphenate the word "wellbeing", and the use of the non-hyphenated version is the exception.

We stand apart in using "wellbeing" for one reason alone, the absence of the hyphen suggests greater integration between "well" and "being", and in our experience the essence of wellbeing, i.e.," the state of being happy, healthy, or prosperous" (Merriam-Webster), requires a sense of wholeness that comes about through greater integration of how one thinks, feels and behaves.

We hope that when you see "wellbeing", you will see what we see, wholeness.
