Hi, my name is Jessica and I have a deep passion for social justice, community work and mental health advocacy. In trying to create a more connected world, I think focusing our attention on improving the healthcare system is intuitive. The healthcare system and the people involved, meet us at our most vulnerable moments; during times filled with confusion and uncertainty. Trying to change the way people receive healthcare, from increasing accessibility to the overall experience, may set the benchmark for how other social systems and programs relate to people and deliver community centered outcomes.
I have participated in workshop for Addressing stigma and discrimination in Education and Training as part of the National Stigma and Discrimination Reduction Strategy and the WH&Y Commission Summer project to develop a new website section.
