Add Your Title

This is a great place to add a tagline.

I began Speak Up with a vision to share how to Embrace Your Superpowers - a method I developed for myself and my children.

My experience as the Minister of Health for Manitoba, educator in Social Work & Nursing, lived experience of mental health diagnosis, interest in current neuroscience, and love of comic books, have all informed a perspective and set of tools that empowers and educates to end stigma.

Great for Superheroes, their Allies, Families, and Mentors!

Embrace Your Superpowers uses techniques from CBT, Mindfulness, Peer-Support, and is grounded in neuroscience. It reframes mental health diagnoses as Superpowers - seeing them as inherently neutral: 

left untreated and unsupported, they can unravel lives. However, if understood, embraced, and focused within an empowering framework, for life-long growth and recovery, these Superpowers can give people the ability to thrive and succeed.

It empowers us to grow and non-judgmentally integrate the successes and failures in our recovery. 

Embrace Your Superpowers provides a stigma-free context for others to understand, and support,

the lived experience of those they know and love.

I work with you to find the right fit for you and your team - Learn more about the services offered employing these tools, along with my years of academic, political, and leadership experience!
