Heidi, Chapter Leader

Heidi is happily the mother of 2 teens aged 17 & 18. My daughter has managed her life while dealing with severe anxiety and depression for the past 10 years. She is currently taking 5 years to finish high school and is completing one course at a time. Heidi has been a nurse for the past 25 years and has practiced in almost every type of nursing including Public Health, labour and delivery, Peer Health Education, nursing instructor at McMaster, Diabetes Educator and Nurse Case Manager for autoimmune diseases. She has the best of intentions of making a quilt and starting up rock painting. She enjoys spending time with her 2 dogs, partner and kiddies relaxing on the sofa while catching up on the day


Patricia, Chapter Leader -   

Patricia is graduate student at McMaster university who is very passionate about children's mental health.  Many of her family members have struggled with mental health issues and depression runs heavily in her family. Patricia's close friend also has Borderline Personality Disorder.

Patricia has aspirations of becoming a clinical psychologist one day to continue to help those struggling with mental illness as well as their caregivers.

She enjoys spending time with her partner, watching movies, reading mystery novels and baking yummy treats.


Parents for Children's Mental Health believe that children, youth, and their families suffering from mental health challenges deserve our extreme respect and assurance.  We are dedicated to improving the lives of these families.


WE LINK families to important networks within their communities to ensure they get the care they need and the support of families who can relate and support them.

WE UNDERSTAND the issues around child and youth mental health challenges and the stigma that prevents the work and conversations that need to happen.

WE HELP communities and families access important resources so they can begin their journey of healing.

I am amazed at the people willing to share. Wish had this site when my daughter was lot younger … Member, Facebook
