  • ​49% of people who have suffered from depression or anxiety have never gone to seek medical help. Instead, they suffer in silence.
  • It is estimated that 3.2 million children , ages 12-19 in Canada are at high risk of developing depression.
  • When caught at an early stage, mental illness can be treated to help live an improved quality of life.
  • Canada’s youth suicide rate is the third highest in the industrialized world.

Karleen speaks to audiences of all ages regarding mental health and well-being. 

She speaks candidly of her own journey as a parent raising a child with mental illness as well as her own struggles throughout her life.

She has the ability to truly connect with her audience to let them know, they are not alone and it's okay to not always feel okay- because there is help.

She also speaks to parents about the importance of being involved with their children's daily lives and 

how to recognize changes in behavioral patterns.

Karleen is a passionate mental health advocate and is the Founder and President of the Feelings First Foundation, supporting mental health and addictions within her local region.
