What is your role at the YWC?
RN Care Coordinator. I’m usually the second point of contact for people coming into the Youth Wellness Centre. I meet with youth who are new to the program to talk about what’s going on in their lives, what they’re struggling with, and what they would like to work on. From there, we come up with a plan of care that can include programming at the Youth Wellness Centre, other St. Joe’s programs, or community programs. I regularly check-in with youth to make sure things are going according to plan, and if not, we can problem solve anything that’s getting in the way of reaching their goals. I also help to co-facilitate some of the groups we have happening here.
Best advice I’ve ever received
