Trevin was born and raised in Abbotsford B.C, and graduated from Robert Bateman Secondary. Trevin has always been into sports, especially hockey, starting at a young age, and playing competitive level hockey until the age of 20. Trevin continues his passion for hockey by taking the coaching ranks and now volunteers as a coach for a local Junior B team in the Fraser Valley. At points in his life Trevin has battled depression and anxiety that have challenged him to reassess his health and motivated him contribute to changing the conversation around mental health. Trevin joins the Speak Up Team as a blogger, writing monthly blogs on mental health issues and his own experience with mental health. Trevin’s goal is to inspire others and communicate with youth and young adults about a more positive conversation around mental health.
I am passionate for wellness in the workplace. With HR qualifications and personal mental health experience I educate and advocate to reduce the stigma of mental health in Canada and the UK through her blogs.
I'm a second year psychiatric nursing student at Douglas College. I've been interested in psychology for as long as I can remember but I became especially interested in mental health issues after watching my best friend battle an eating disorder for most of her teenage years. I hope that by volunteering with Speak Up I can help change the conversation surrounding mental illness and play a part in reducing the stigma that surrounds these issues. In my free time I like to do yoga as a stress-reliever and when I'm not too busy with schoolwork I volunteer at the animal shelter as a professional cat cuddler.
