A bit about VIBE:
VIBE is a Mental Health Capacity Building Program, and is funded by Alberta Health Services. I spend my days in classrooms talking to children, youth, and staff about mental health literacy and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health. I also teach skills and strategies to promote mental wellness, helping students to manage stress and to recognize when it may be time to reach out for supports. I also spend time making sure to connect staff, students, and parents, to mental health and other supports in our communities. When I'm not in your schools, I'm usually at a VIBE sponsored event bringing mental health information and resources to our communities, or taking care of my three awesome kids.
