How long have you volunteered with CMHA Kelowna?
I have enjoyed volunteering with CMHA in Kelowna since 2017. I volunteer as a committee member on the Parent Advisory Council for Foundry Kelowna as well as provide peer mentorship at CMHA.
What motivated you to volunteer at CMHA?
Having the ability through my own lived experience to offer empathy understanding and support, to those struggling with their own mental health is what motivated me to get involved with CMHA.
What makes this volunteer experience a meaningful use of your time?
I am so grateful to be at a place in my life where I can support others. The Peer Mentoring Program fosters connection not only for the mentee, but also for the mentor. Connection is something we all need in times of despair without it we would all be lost.
