Katie Balances Motherhood, Mental Illness and Career as a Mental Health Nurse

Written by Darryl Mathers on .

Since Ontario Shores introduced #MindVine back in January, 2014 we have had an inspiring space to share a variety of stories related to mental health.

Among our contributors are psychiatrists, nurses, researchers, patients and family members.

Personally, it has been incredibly rewarding to see this space used to share information and ignite conversations. Three years after its launch we have a diverse collection of stories from far ranging perspectives impacted by mental health and mental illness.

On the eve of National Mental Health Week (May 1-7) I’m proud to introduce you to someone who brings another unique perspective to #MindVine.
