What is your role at the YWC?
As a Peer Support Worker, my role here is to support you as you navigate the mental health system as a person who also has lived experience with mental illness. I care a lot about the ways that marginalization and oppression contribute to our mental well-being.
Like all of our Peer Support Workers, I help to run some of our groups at the YWC, including the Peer Support Circle. I’m alsofacilitating Black Table Talk, a youth-led mental health workshop series for black youth.. Find out more about these groups by clicking here.
