Vicki is a Child and Youth Worker who has worked with children, youth and families for 18 years as a support and advocate. She has lived experience as a parent and within her family of origin and believes in the framework that everyone has mental health but some need extra support for their well-being. She hopes to spread this view to battle stigma.

Vicki has experienced navigating the current children’s mental health system and knows that it can be frustrating and unclear but believes that there is hope in advocacy and peer support. She believes that peer support amongst parents/caregivers is crucial for families to feel understood in a world of systems that are complex so that our children/youth achieve bright futures. Vicki currently participates on the Strategic Advisory Council for the Ontario Centre of Excellence for Children and Youth Mental Health and wants to build a network of peer support in London in hopes of empowering parents/caregivers who are supporting children/youth
