My Role at the YWC:
Hello! I am a Child and Youth Care Practitioner & Certified Peer Supporter for the Re-Engagement stream, and also provide 2SLGBTQIA+ Support.
I use my Lived experience with the Mental Health System to support Peers in developing hope, self-determination, effective coping skills/ self-care strategies and provide support with any wellness goals identified during our work together.
My focus working through the re-engagement stream is to help support you in reducing any barriers you are encountering while re-engaging with mental health treatment.
I also support Peers in navigating issues specific to the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
I am responsible for running the YWC Instagram and keeping our website up to date, and act as staff liaison for the Youth Council and Everyone’s Threads.
I help facilitate several groups at the Youth Wellness Centre as well, including YWC Socials and SAGE (Support around Gender Experience)
