Alex has always been passionate about mental health, stemming from lived experiences and from working with youth both in the nonprofit sector and teaching at the University level. Joining Jack.org has helped them connect with their passion for youth mental health and working with supporters and donors to continue the youth mental health revolution. Alex is the first line of contact for individuals and organizations that want to support us in our fight for youth mental health in Canada. What inspires Alex is seeing our youth network step up for themselves and others in defending their own mental health, in a world where stigma and discrimination is still prevalent. In their spare time, Alex enjoys reading, cooking, baking, and spending time volunteering at a local cat rescue and cuddling with all the adoptable kitties.
