Kwayaciiwin is happy to welcome Chelsea Trist to our team as the Mental Health Support Counsellor.
This is a new position at Kwayaciiwin, but one that has been wanted for some time. Chelsea will promote positive mental health and a culture of well-being in the schools by facilitating mental health initiatives for schools, including targeted preventions for students at risk, by supporting the development and implementation of professional mental health training programs for educators, and by liaising with other agencies and service providers in the area of mental health.
Chelsea has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a certificate in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and is currently working on completing a certification in life coaching. She previously worked for Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Hospital in the Mental Health and Addictions program as a Mental Health and Addictions Counsellor, and at the Dryden Regional Health Centre with Crisis Response Services.
The Mental Health Support Counsellor joins our School Support Services and is available as a resource to schools.
