Chapter Leader - Ashley Park

Ashley is a Child and Youth Worker who has worked with children, youth and families living with disabilities and mental health from a young age. She has lived experience as a parent and within her family of origin. She believes in the framework that everyone has mental health, with some needing extra support for their well-being. She hopes to spread this view to battle stigma.

Ashley has experienced navigating the current children’s mental health system and knows it is a frustrating and confusing experience and believes that with guidance and advocacy it will become easier for families to link to appropriate services and gain access to needed supports.

She believes that peer support among 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.

Ashley currently works for CMHA-Elgin as Housing Case Manager working to reduce homelessness in Elgin and lessen the stigma of Mental Health by screening, planning and linking individuals and families to appropriate housing and supports for success.
