Here are some media interviews and talks I’ve given trying to spread the word about the need for improved maternal mental health care:
Not an April fool’s joke! When Canadian olympian Silken Lauman asked me to share my story for her new mental health platform, We Are Unsinkable, of course, I gladly did!
Genevieve Desrochers is an incredible fellow Canadian mom with lived experience who is not afraid to share her experience to help others. She wrote a book (in English and French!) and shared its contents on YouTube. I was lucky enough to be interviewed by Genevieve for her YouTube channel: Postpartum, Let’s Talk!
When Heather Down of Wintertickle Press and Barrie City Councillor Natalie Harris invited me to contribute to their mental health anthology, Brainstorm Revolution, I jumped at the chance and wrote about a night I had in the ER called “Postpartum Repression”. I loved joining fellow authors at multiple Chapters book signings. Other contributors to the anthology include Michael Landsberg and Deb McGrath.
I was a keynote speaker at the 2018 Parental Brain Conference in Toronto.
I was a keynote speaker at 2018 second annual March for Mental Health Toronto.
I was a keynote speaker at World Maternal Mental Health Day Walk in Barrie.
I was interviewed by Sarah Lajeunesse from This Kinda Life for Global news and 93.1 Fresh Radio Fresh Moms Club during Maternal Mental Health week.
