What motivated you to volunteer at CMHA?
I was a psychiatric nurse many years ago and loved that job. In the last decade or so I became more interested in art and starting doing water colors, acrylics, prints etc. during my CEA training. It seemed like a great fit to volunteer in the art room with CMHA. I find it rewarding to collaborate with participants on their projects, assist with the annual gala, and just be around the wonderful creative souls who participate in the wellness programs. The staff and participants are extremely appreciative of anything I do! It is always a bonus to hang out and assist some of the many local artists who teach art classes too. They’re all great!
