MSW, RSW, she/her, Nova Scotia
Meaghan is a social worker from the east coast. Born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, she is now settled in Halifax, Nova Scotia, working at IWK Health as well as in private clinical social work practice. She has spent time working in rural and remote parts of Northern Labrador, and gained valuable experience working with Indigenous communities. She completed her Master of Social Work at the University of Toronto, and has worked in children’s and adolescent mental health in Ontario. Meaghan brings with her experience as Chair of the Board of Directors for a local non-for-profit organization in Halifax, and is excited to be on the CPMHC’s Board to help govern an organization that will bring forth national guidance and change in perinatal mental health across the country. She hopes that the valuable work that the CPMHC does will help to broaden and increase perinatal mental health services available throughout Canada. Meaghan works from a trauma informed, intersectional, anti-oppressive-anti-racist feminsit lens, and hopes that her education, training and experience will help CPMHC to continue and excel in the work the organization is already doing. She is looking forward to working with folks from across the country who have similar goals and hopes for perinatal mental health in Canada.
