Stuart knew that his work at Jack.org would perfectly combine his experience engaging and mentoring youth with his passion for equity, inclusion, and social justice. As Knowledge Translation Lead, his job is to digest and summarize the knowledge we produce at Jack.org. His role is about making sense of data, presenting it to all stakeholders in a way that is clear and coherent, and empowering us all to make positive mental health change in our own lives and communities. Stuart hopes to see high quality mental health resources, services, and education become truly accessible to all, especially those who experience marginalization. Mental health systems must be intentionally inclusive and representative of those who face barriers to a safe and healthy life. Mental health cannot be separated from the colonial context, and therefore, the way in which we interact with mental health must be based in anti-racist, decolonial perspectives and practices. There's nothing that builds Stuart back up more than putting on a Toronto Raptors or Blue Jays game at the end of a long day, while enjoying some great local take out food (preferably hot and spicy).
