Numila Parker, MSW, RSW

Numila joined PCMH in November 2013 as a parent seeking support, information and some direction in helping her teenage daughter who was experiencing severe anxiety and depression. The PCMH group members were wonderfully understanding and empathic and they gave Numila excellent direction and help in navigating the system. Numila took a leave of absence 18 years ago from her career as a social worker and mental health clinician for full time parenting of her three children. She has been extensively involved as a volunteer at her children’s schools on many levels and is an active participant and supporter in many charitable initiatives that include Breast Cancer awareness, United Way, Ontario Friends of Schizophrenia, Shine Out! Shout Out!, and the CMHA. Numila looks forward to the role of the Oakville Chapter leader. Numila is honoured to be engaged in this role with PCMH.
