Patti Hannivan- Chapter Leader

For Patti, the issues surrounding mental health are ones she is very familiar with. Patti grew up experiencing the generational impact within her own family, and in more recent years, the impact on her daughter who at age 15 became an at risk youth as the result of her inability to cope with the murder of her friend.

As a professional artist and business owner, Patti has used her skills on community heritage projects to create and initiate work training programs for youth helping to give them the working skills to improve their future opportunities. She added to her credentials the title of Child and Youth Care Worker and has been working in schools and residential settings, counseling youth and their families.  She is a member of the Ontario Association of Child and Youth Counselors.
