Chapter Leader - Angie 

Angie is the mother to 3 amazing kids. She has over 15 years experience dealing with children in a caregiver/support role. Angie has lived experience as a parent and within her family of origin. The past couple of years have brought the experience of navigating the school and current childrens mental health system. This experience has proven how hard, frustrating and confusing the current system is. Due to the lack of support in her surrounding community Angie was motivated to become a chapter leader for PCMH.

Angie believes that with guidance and advocacy it will become easier for families to link appropriate services and gain access to needed supports. Angie is safetalk and assist certified. She is also a member of the Family Advisory Committee for Huron/Perth and is currently enrolled in the Childrens Mental Health course at Humber.

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