Chris Tan

Bodybuilder, Mental Health Advocate & Foodie

I made my decision to go vegan in 2017 soon after I was diagnosed with cyclothymic disorder. I started regular therapy sessions alongside pharmacological treatment, which progressively improved my ability to manage my own mental health while also gaining a better understanding of my own values and beliefs.

For me, veganism promotes the idea that my existence is no more significant than anyone else’s. Although it’s impossible for me to contribute positively to everything around me; if a living being values their life and wishes to be a part of this world just as much as I do, then the least that I can do is try my best to limit my actions that would otherwise harm them.
