A Farewell to mindyourmind

A Fairwell to mindyourmind

When I first left the Graduate program at Western University, I was nervous about finding work. I was a young professional (and in many ways I still am), with little experience outside of the various small jobs I worked in High School and Undergrad. I knew I wanted to work in research and mental health. But finding that kind of work can be difficult early in your career. Despite this, I managed to find a starting point among some great people. Fortunately so, as I don’t think I could have asked for a better cohort of peers to be working with. The work that mindyourmind does is important, and each person I met in the organisation shared a passion for the work they did. Though my current contract is ending, I know that mindyourmind will continue to be a voice for empathy and action in the mental health field. I can only hope that our paths cross again; and when they do, I’m excited to see what all they’ve done since I’ve left.
