Meet the AMI staff
At AMI, I am the Outreach Coordinator, my role is to reach out to families, schools, businesses, and community organizations in an effort to get people talking about mental health in order to reduce stigma. I do this through targeted presentations, tabling at mental health fairs, and virtual presentations and workshops.
I love bad jokes, riding motorcycles, and making things work that stopped working for whatever reason!
Staying in one workplace for the long run means you are either afraid to leave or you love what you do. Count me with the latter. Serving the community, while sustaining a culture of engagement, respect and trust within, has been an invaluable, gratifying experience. And it continues...
I am a Family Peer Support Worker at AMI, and I am collaborating with the CIUSSS Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal to expand our service to caregivers who support a loved one with a mental illness across the territory. I aim to bring awareness on the roles and challenges that family members, partners and friends have as they follow their loved one along the journey that is mental illness.
I‘d rather be barefoot all the time, I love slack lining (but I’m no expert), I’m vegan, and most importantly I make sure to watch every single movie nominated at the Oscars ahead of time, so I can be excited about who wins.
At AMI, I offer counseling, guidance and information to family members, partners and friends who have a loved one suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder or struggling to regulate their emotions. This is done through workshops, groups and one on one counseling.
I love walking, trees and bird watching, dancing, and singing to chihuahuas!
When someone is suffering from a mental health issue, it also impacts those who love them. At the Jewish General, I will be helping parents, children, spouses and friends navigate the complexities of being a caregiver and referring them to AMI programs or outside resources.
When not at AMI, I consult as a Human Behaviour Specialist to demystify difficult workplace relationships. In my spare time, you’ll find me walking my rescue dog or leading hymns at my church.
I have been with AMI for many years in different capacities. Since the beginning of the pandemic I’ve been at reception.
I love reading, decorating for all holidays, and crafting anything glitter. Can’t wait to have people back at the office to share it with.
Howdy, I am the Program Coordinator at AMI-Quebec. I oversee our support groups, Facebook Live events, and workshops. Since the pandemic began, we moved all of our events online, so I do alotta Technical Support.
I love basketball, yoga, obscure movies, and writing.
At AMI-Quebec I’m working to build awareness of the important role young carers play in supporting their loved ones, and create resources and community connections to support them.
I‘m a park connoisseur, songwriter and podcast fanatic. You can find me out admiring Montreal’s architecture and arts scene.
Hi, I am an Intake Worker and Family Mental Health Counselor at AMI. I guide people in need of support services towards appropriate educational, self-care and counseling resources, including our SOS-Famille Program, “a short-term intervention for long-term impact.”
I love to start my day with a cup of tea and a good book. I enjoy Lakeshore walks, motorcycle rides, practicing Qigong with my cat …
I work in administration which includes communication, accounting, fundraising, IT, office management, and more. Having struggled for many years with severe depression, I know how important it is for families to get support too, and that’s what we do here at AMI.
I run for fun!
