Paul Huljich

Paul Huljich was born in Auckland, New Zealand. An early pioneer of organic and natural foods, Paul, along with his brothers, founded Best Corporation in 1985. Paul, serving as Chairman and Joint-CEO guided Best Corporation to unparalleled success. The company was listed on the stock exchange in December 1991 and sold to a multinational food company in 1993. In 1998, Paul was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and experienced a full mental breakdown that year, losing his rights as a New Zealand citizen and being made a ward of the state. Informed that there was no cure, that he would eventually relapse, and that he would be dependent on medication for the rest of his life, he traveled to the world renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and then admitted himself to the Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas, to more fully understand and move through his condition. In 2009, he founded MWellA (Mind Wellness Awareness). The Mind Wellness Awareness community seeks to build an awareness of 'mind conditions' and work with other mind condition organizations with the understanding that prevention is the key, as it is far better than recovery and gives people hope. Inspired by Paul’s ultimate purpose in life, MWellA hopes to guide everyone who wishes to seek peace of mind, contentment and happiness through providing them with the resources necessary to rebuild the mind, body and spirit.
