Yasmin Tuff, Principal Yasmin Tuff Health Care Consulting
Yasmin is excited to join the board of the Canadian Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative to help advance a vision for healthy, vibrant women and their families. She looks forward to contributing to the development of strategic partnerships to foster and advocate for the improvement of perinatal mental services to support the complex needs of Canadian women and their families.
Her background has involved both the planning and delivery of pediatric and perinatal services in BC. Most recently, she has supported provincial initiatives focused on system-level planning for mental health services for children and youth and pediatric emergency care. Part of this work has included the development of interdisciplinary, provincial guidelines to support pediatric mental health services in acute care environments.
She has worked in BC healthcare for over 25 years and has experience in program planning, project management and operational leadership positions. She has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Victoria and a Master’s in Health Administration from the University of Ottawa.
In her free time, she enjoys the many hiking trails on Vancouver Island and is grateful to be able to live, work and play within the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples.
