Dear Community of Practice Members,

We are delighted to announce that Tanya Miller has joined our team as the temporary Provincial Coordinator! Tanya will be responsible for coordinating province-wide campus mental health promotion, optimizing cross-institution learning opportunities and facilitating the annual Summit.

Tanya has a Bachelor of Journalism from Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, and recently graduated from the Master's in Criminology program at Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Burnaby, British Columbia, where her research focused on portrayals of accused persons deemed Not Criminally Responsible on Account of Mental Disorder (NCR) in Canadian media. Her findings showed that portrayals were often inaccurate, negative, and sensationalized, which is why she is eager to effect positive change. In fact, you may recognize her from her time with the Hi-F.I.V.E. Movement for Mental Health (Hi-F.I.V.E.), a student-lead and volunteer-run initiative at SFU that promotes kindness, compassion, and acceptance, with the aim of ultimately eliminating the stigma of mental illness.

Tanya has participated in the annual Summit in the past, as well as many CMHA conferences and events, so she is already very familiar with our community and vision. She brings her dedication to, and passion for, mental health, as well as a wealth of experience working with volunteers and turning research into action.

Welcome, Tanya!
