Katelyn As the former Program Coordinator for Communities Addressing Suicide Together (CAST), I have worked with provincial and national community groups and organizations to build capacity to address suicide, and am a certified suicide alertness trainer. I have worked in the mental health field within various organizations including the Canadian Mental Health Association Nova Scotia Division, Strongest Families Institute and transitional housing for women. I have also enjoyed volunteering with Nova Institution for Women and the Feed Nova Scotia Helpline. Currently, my passion for animal welfare has led me to volunteer with ElderDog Canada and Homeward Bound City Pound.
