Trish believes that facilitating dialogue and reducing stigma in the workplace regarding mental health are essential to the long-term success of organizations and businesses. She feels very passionate about providing a roadmap to leaders, employers, managers and supervisors to engage in meaningful processes while addressing mental health concerns in the workplace.
Trish has worked extensively in mental health settings for the past 20 years, both in the private and public sectors. Her clinical experience includes people of all ages across two provinces and several communities, including direct work with many Indigenous groups and individuals.
With a BA in psychology as well as a Master of Social Work with a focus on community organization, management and policy, Trish is able to bring her clinical experience as a therapist directly into her consultation work with organizations and employers. She has always maintained an interest in the intersection of personal wellness and the health of organizations.
Currently, Trish works as an investigator with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission, conducts appeal processes for the Saskatchewan Government in disability services, and provides consultation in the area of child, youth, and family mental health. Additionally, she has been a trainer with both the Crisis and Trauma Resource Institute and ACHIEVE since 2013. She is the author of workshops in the field of child and family mental health for CTRI and the webinar and workshop on Managing Mental Health in the Workplace for the ACHIEVE.
