Victoria Hampton is a Registered Social Worker with over a decade of experience providing services in the areas of mental health and family violence. She is thrilled to be part of the effort CPMHC is leading to address perinatal mental health concerns in our country. Victoria’s professional background as a social worker and personal history of severe maternal morbidity following childbirth affords her a unique perspective on the need for services across the many diverse communities in Canada. As a Specialized Near-Miss Coordinator with Postpartum Support International, she has an intimate understanding of the barriers facing those seeking services and a passion for ensuring that individuals have access to support for the challenges they are facing. Victoria’s hope is that efforts to raise the profile of perinatal mental health in Canada translates to increased awareness, funding, research, and resources for all who are impacted by this issue.
