Janelle loves seeing individuals develop and succeed in the best ways. Jack.org does an amazing job in promoting positive mental health and connectedness, so today's youth can do just that. In her role as a Program Coordinator, Janelle is the gateway between the youth in our network and the organization. She has the pleasure of teaming up with youth to ensure that both their voices and pathways to positive mental health are heard and demonstrated. Janelle hopes to see the stigma around mental health challenges come to an end. One of the biggest barriers to ending the stigma around mental health challenges is lack of understanding, and if more people were educated in promoting positive mental health, she believes that this stigma wouldn't be so magnified. If you ever run into Janelle in the streets of Toronto, one thing she could talk about for hours is Grey’s Anatomy.
